Hosted by David Tennant, and featuring the pick of Britain's finest comedy talent, 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.
