When is Live At The Apollo returning for its 14th series?

...and which comedians will be on it

BBC Two has confirmed that Live At The Apollo will be returning on Thursday November 15 at 10pm,

The new series is the 14th run of the stand-up showcase and comprises seven episodes, including a Christmas special.

Episode one is hosted by The Mash Report’s Ellie Taylor, who introduces Tez Ilyas and Fin Taylor.

Chortle first reported the line-ups in September, and here’s the order they are expected to run in: 

1: Ellie Taylor introduces Fin Taylor and Tez Ilyas

2: Dara O Briain introduces Felicity Ward and Mo Gilligan 

3: Gina Yashere introduces Lost Voice Guy  and Ed Gamble

4: Phil Wang introduces Brennan Reece and Rachel Parris    

5: Kerry Godliman introduces  Suzi Ruffell and Loyiso Gola           

6: Christmas special with Sarah Millican introducing her husband Gary Delaney plus  Laura Lexx and Ahir Shah

7: Jamali  Maddix introduces, Sindhu Vee and  Fern Brady

This year’s series puts the emphasis on up-and-coming talent. Although it is O Briain's seventh appearance on the show – more than anyone else except Jack Dee who hosted the first two seasons – and Millican's fifth, most acts are new to the programme.
