Our own Laurie Taylor on Stand-up with the Stars

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

As part of the Comic Relief festivities, Radio 4 has been running Stand-up with the Stars, in which four of their presenters – Evan Davis, Libby Purves, Peter White and our very own Laurie Taylor – have been training to deliver stand-up comedy sets, under the watchful eyes of professional stand-up mentors.

Laurie has been mentored by Shappi Khorsandi (who has also contributed to New Humanist in the past), and you can listen to his performances (as well as the others', of course) by visiting the Stand-up with the Stars site.

You can then do your bit for charity by voting for Laurie to win (although it's your democratic right to vote for any of the others, but why would we advocate that?). The numbers to call are on the site, but I'll give you Laurie's here - 09011 32 34 03.

Be swift – lines close at midnight tonight (Weds 11 March). The winner will be announced on The Now Show on Friday.

"Evan Davis, Libby Purves, Evan Davis and our very own Laurie Taylor"

Is that three plus a clone?

I deserved that! Changed it now. The 4th participant is actually Peter White.
