When you're 30 years old you're now older than any dog that you meet - is that why they don't understand your jokes?
Find out how a supernatural experience last Christmas led an award-winning comedian to confront some of the bigger questions in life that we'd usually rather avoid, like, what is the one true faith? How do I look after a pet snake? Are people filming me?
Also contains ghosts, paranoia, brown rice, undertakers, brass bands and of course, lots and lots of jokes (for humans anyway).
Peter Brush is a former BBC New Comedy Award Finalist and winner of the Harrogate Comedy Festival Comedian of the Year. He has written for Radio 4's The News Quiz, The Show What You Wrote and Newsjack, and supported Arthur Smith during his 2013 tour.
