British stand-up comedy show filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo. Debuted in 2004. In the first few series it was presented by comedian Jack Dee (and was named ''Jack Dee Live At The Apollo'') with other comedians as guests. After he left, the host varied from week to week. It has finished airing its fifth series.

Not to be confused with the American syndicated show, ''Showtime At The Apollo''.
----
!!Tropes:
* DeadpanSnarker: Jack Dee lives, breathes and probably eats this trope.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Pointed out by Dara Ó Briain. Why is that internationally famous agent so prone to dying, jumping about randomly and not being able to crouch?
* GuestHost: Since Jack Dee left.
* LiteralMinded: Some of Lee Mack's act.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The cast varies each week.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Lee Mack noticing all the famous people present in the audience...and Jim Rosenthal.
* TheNapoleon: Dee's stage persona.
* NinetyPercentOfYourBrain: Al Murray, the pub landlord, thinks that beer makes a human tap into this.
* OopNorth: Take a sip whenever Jason Manford mentions being from Manchester, you'll be drunk in no time.
* PungeonMaster: Tim Vine, when he's not being LiteralMinded.
* RapidFireComedy: Some of the acts like Tim Vine and Jimmy Carr simply go up and tell jokes rather than tell long observations.
* WhatWereTheySellingAgain: Rich Hall refers to this trope by name when comparing British advertisements to American ones.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Michael [=McIntyre=], he got his own spinoff show and a best selling DVD out of it.



* HilariousInHindsight: When Ed Byrne was hosting, he mocked audience member Lembit Opik's series of celebrity partners, saying "Don't give me that 'women are attracted to power' bullshit, you're a Lib Dem!" A few months after the episode went out, the 2010 UK general election ended in the Lib Dems getting into power (sort of) via a coalition with the Conservative government... and Opik lost his seat at the same election.
