RTÉ's Ray D'Arcy TV and radio shows have just launched a new comedy talent competition called Stand Up and Be Funny and are looking for amateur comedians to apply.

All you have to do is send a short video and you could be in with a chance to appear on Ray's radio and television shows on RTÉ Radio 1 and RTÉ One, and win the opportunity to develop a comedy pilot with RTÉ Online for RTÉ Player.

Ray and the team will select people to appear at three national heats, hosted by comedian Karl Spain, leading to a final stand off on The Ray D'Arcy Show on RTÉ One.

So if you think you're the King or Queen of Comedy get in touch with the team!

The closing date for applications is Friday, October 25 at 4pm.
