Comic Relief stand-up date for BBC Wiltshire presenter

BBC Wiltshire's Graham Mack performs his stand-up routine in front of a celebrity panel of judges.

Can you imagine anything more terrifying than standing on stage trying to make people laugh?

Well that is the challenge our own fearless Swindon Breakfast Show presenter Graham Mack has taken on - and he wants your support!

For this year's Red Nose Day appeal he will be raising money and hopefully a few laughs.

He will be learning the ropes, writing a routine, then performing it on stage in front of a crowd.

Graham has just one month to practise before performing at a Comedy Night Comic Relief Special at The Victoria, Old Town, Swindon on Monday, 7 March.

Comedian Mark Watson will be on hand to mentor Graham and the presenter will also be going to a Comic Relief 'boot camp' in London to pick up some tips from some of Britain's top comedians.

Graham said: "When I'm on the radio on my own, I sometimes say things that I think are funny and then don't hear any laughter.

"That's bad for stand-up comedy though, isn't it?"
