In each episode, the celebrity will travel with someone with a serious
disability and, in each challenge, the able-bodied will have to simulate the
conditions facing the disabled companion in an effort to understand their

Brand new show alert!
Funnyman Chris Addison (you know, Blood off of Skins) is on his way. He’s
bringing all his funniness to Show & Tell, a brand new comedy series which
will be a celebration of showing, and err, telling. That is to say, story
telling, stand up and new comedy talent.
Each week, Chris will be joined by three fresh-faced, up-and-coming comics,
each bringing some things to “show” and “tell” the audience all about. In a
ruddy funny, stand-uppy way.
Plus the audience will also bring their very own peculiar “show and tells”
which Chris and his pals can have a look at, and a comedy chat all over.
Throughout the series we’ll be asking YOU LOT to get stuck in too via
Twitter. Follow @e4showandtell and play along with our games, coming soon.
Expect to see these cheeky rising stars on the show: James Acaster, Susan
Calman, Roisin Conaty, Elis James, Nick Helm, Maeve Higgins, Joe Lycett,
Diane Morgan, Celia Pacquola, Tom Parry, Chris Ramsey, Josh Widdicombe and
