Five of Britainís top sporting personalities are to try their hand at one of the hardest games there is: stand-up comedy! And itís all in the name of Sport Relief...

Ashes winning cricketer Michael Vaughan, World Cup winning rugby player Ben Cohen and BBC Sports Broadcaster and former Commonwealth gymnast Gaby Logan will all perform a three minute comedy set based on their sporting life. The daunting gig will not only be in front of a live audience but also at one of the countryís top comedy venues Ėand thatís not all...

Each sports star will be paired with one of the country's top stand-up comedians. Jason Manford, Andi Osho, Chris Ramsey and Daniel Sloss will each mentor one sports personality.

On the night itself, the mentors will warm up the audience for the sporting acts and perform first, before the sports personalities take to the stage, supported all the way by the host Claudia Winkleman and the eager crowd.

The show will record on Sunday 11th March at The Bloomsbury Theatre, London WC1H 0AH. If you would like to come and support Michael Vaughan, Gabby Logan and Ben Cohen amongst others in the gig of their life - and all in aid of Sport Relief - then apply now!
