The Show Me The Funny live final is this week and there's still five comics remaining in the competition for a £100,000 cash prize, stand up DVD and headlining tour. Tonight's episode is the last chance for the aspiring stand ups to win a place in the final and nerves are understandably high.
And our favourite Ellie Taylor is particularly struggling.
“I am really nervous. But I had a word with myself. I’ve written on my hand so I should be alright with that," she says.
But on stage it seems Ellie is almost too reliant on her hand-written prompts, frequently glancing down at her notes. But with laughs aplenty and a rip-roaring gig, will the judges overlook her nerves or is the writing on the wall for the budding comic?
