Chain gang

Comic-on-comic action for R4

Comedians are to interview each other in a new chat show format for Radio 4.

The twist is that once a comic has been the interviewee, they return next week to be the interviewer - and they get to choose who they talk to.

Chain Reaction will start with Jenny Eclair interviewing Jimmy Carr.

Then he interviews Little Britain’s Matt Lucas, who interviews Johnny Vegas, who interviews Stewart Lee and so on.

But Lee has yet to choose his subject, so the final two programmes in the series are still to be announced.

Recording starts in central London next week for later broadcast.
