Ellie Taylor struggles in latest Show Me The Funny gig

SMTF Ellie Taylor

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?
