Ben Elton returns to telly stand-up

These days, he’s better known as the scribbler behind Blackadder and – shudder – the Queen musical ‘We Will Rock You’, but back in the day Ben Elton was the shiny-suited king of the stand-up circuit. He’s not done telly comedy for a decade though… until now.

Dave’s new 10pm slot on a Sunday has been turned over to One Night Stand, a new show which sees big name comics doing a one-off stand-up show in their old home towns. Johnny Vegas, Jack Whitehall and Sarah Millican are signed up for future editions, but Sunday night’s opener features none less than Mr Elton himself as he comperes a show from his native Catford in South London.
