Award-winning host Jo Brand is in the presenting chair for this brand new and exclusive comedy panel show that lifts the lid on the world of comedy. Eager to know why Fawlty Towers’ Manuel had a moustache? The worst thing about being in Blackadder? Or maybe which actors had to bring their own clothes to film a hit pilot? Jo Brand’s Great Wall Of Comedy provides the answers.
Joining Jo in her mock living room are two team captains, both comedy giants – the legend that is Barry Cryer and BAFTA–winning actress Rebecca Front, trying to answer questions based on brilliant classic sitcoms from down the ages, posed from a wall of TVs from the likes of Lesley Joseph (Bird of a Feather), June Whitfield (Absolutely Fabulous) and Andrew Sachs (Fawlty Towers).
Each week Barry and Rebecca are joined on the sofas by a host of star guests, including Tony Robinson, ‘Allo ‘Allo’s Vicki Michelle, Dave Spikey from Phoenix Nights and Hugh Dennis from Outnumbered. Together the teams answer questions about the history of sitcoms, and delve into the archives to uncover the stories and secrets behind the nation’s greatest comedy treasures, from over enthusiastic co-stars, bad accents, on–set pranksters and fame in Zimbabwe!
