Any organisation with workers, patients or residents in need of a laugh can apply in return for a donation to Comic Relief. Smug plans 20 gigs, each lasting 20 minutes, on the 24 hour tour.

The ‘20’ theme is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the launch of Smug’s career on February 28, when Caroline Aherne spotted him at the Frog & Bucket in Manchester.

The gagman said: “Thanks in advance to anybody that donates to Comic Relief and helps us on our 24 hours of madness!”
