A new 'Age'

Radio 4 recomissions panel show

Radio 4 is to make another series of panel show Act Your Age, which pitches comedians of different generations against each other.

Team captains Jon Richardson and Lucy Porter will return, but Roy Walker will no longer be leading the Old Guard side, where Tom O'Connor and Ted Robbins will now be regulars.

Richardson will be joined by Holly Walsh on the ‘Up-And-Comers’ team; while Rufus Hound joins Porter on the Current Crop side.

Hosted by Simon Mayo, the third series is being recorded from next month. See our free tickets page to be in the studio audience. Tickets for the recording of the second series of Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle are also available there.
