BBC Radio Kent stand up for Comic Relief

Matthew and his fellow BBC radio presenters on stage

For this year's Red Nose Day appeal Matthew Davies was raising money and a few laughs.

He performed a stand up routine on stage to raise money for and make people laugh.

Matthew went to a boot camp where his performance was judged by some of the country's best comics.

Jo Brand said of one of Matthews jokes: "I first did that joke in 1986. It got a laugh. 'Nick people's jokes' that's my motto."

She continued: "Nice patter, confidence, nice glasses and it worked well for me."

Stand Up for Comic Relief

Matthew Davies's challenge was all part of Stand Up for Comic Relief.

Matthew said: "Comic Relief is a great charity and it's brilliant to do something like this.

"You need a bit of a sense of humour when you're a radio presenter let me tell you but the challenge of standing up in front of a paying audience is something else entirely!

"I need your help, so please text me your support it only costs a pound and the whole pound goes to Comic Relief."
