Graham Liver Stands Up for Comic Relief

BBC Radio Lancashire presenter Graham Liver made his debut as a stand up as a comedian and he not only raised money for Comic Relief, he raised the roof.

He admitted to being terrified before he took to the stage at Blackburn's Thwaites Empire Theatre.

However, once the Breakfast Show presenter started it was hard to get him off.

He enjoyed himself so much, he was on stage for more than 20 minutes and he was only down to do a five minute spot.

"I loved it," said Graham after his stand up stint on Monday 14 March. "I want to go on tour now!"

And comic legend Ted Robbins, who mentored him, was impressed with his act.

Ted said: "I was very, very proud of him.

"He went on after a load of hard professionals, Jimmy Cricket, Steve Royle and I did a bit, and to top the bill was marvellous."

He might have done the "Laugh-a-Minute" challenge but you can still donate.
