Union Jack Radio to air 1990s stand-up clips

Part of its #StandUpToCorona strand

Union Jack Radio is to feature stand-up clips from 1990s TV show Live At Jongleurs as part of its new comedy strand.

The early work of comics including Ed Byrne, Omid Djalili, Marcus Brigstocke, Andy Parsons, Rhona Cameron, Simon Evans, Adam Bloom, Sean Meo, Junior Simpson and Mike Gunn will be heard as part of the thrice-weekly #StandUpToCorona.

Clips from the likes of Blackadder and Fawlty Towers were previously announced as part of the programming, alongside content from  up-and-coming  comedians.

The broadcaster says the show is  ‘designed to make the British public laugh at this time of uncertainty, while also giving comedians a national platform to broadcast their content when their gigs, tours and events were cruelly cancelled’.

#StandUpToCorona is on at 7pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday
