David Tennant Hosts Comedy World Cup: More Details revealed

David Tennant's new panel show Comedy World Cup begins on Saturday 15th September. More details have now been made available about the show and some of the guest stars.

About the show:

Comedy World Cup is a new seven-part panel show in which Tennant referees two teams of comedians as they compete against each other in a hilarious knockout competition. In each episode the teams, whose careers and comedy know-how span a total of 100 years, pit their wits against each other in a series of rounds to find out which team are the biggest comedy brainboxes and fountains of funny knowledge. Each team is made up of three comedians - a team captain in their 30s/40s, an over-50 comedy legend, and a comedy newbie in their 20s/30s. Team captains featuring during the series are; Alan Carr, Andy Parsons, Jo Brand, Phill Jupitus, Jason Manford, Omid Djalili, Johnny Vegas and Micky Flanagan. At the end of the series the final two teams will go head-to-head, with one team crowned ultimate champions and winners of the Comedy World Cup 2012.

Episode one can be seen on Channel 4 on Saturday 15th September at 8.20pm, slightly later than the 8.10pm start time previously announced.
