Live Floor Show is a television comedy show produced by BBC Scotland for three series from 2002–2003. The first two series, hosted by Greg Hemphill, were broadcast on BBC One Scotland.[1] The third series, hosted by Dara Ó Briain, was shown on BBC Two.[1][2]

The programme featured a number of regular acts on one of the three stages at the Queen Margaret Drive studios in Glasgow: Frankie Boyle, Al Murray, Craig Hill, Paul Sneddon, Miles Jupp, and Jim Muir. The show also featured many other well-known guest acts: Bill Bailey, Doug Stanhope, Mackenzie Crook, Des McLean, Craig Charles, Dan Antopolski, Jo Brand, and Matt Blaize.

At the end of each show there was a musical act. One notable appearance was by Robert Plant, on the same night as Bill Bailey.
