Simon Bird: Debrief. Simon Bird.

All 4 is publishing Debrief, the debut stand-up special of Inbetweeners star Simon Bird.

The show, available to watch now for free via the streaming platform, was produced by Baby Cow Productions and recorded last month at an empty Boulevard Theatre in London.

The producers say: "Simon, undeterred (or emboldened?) by empty seats and eerie silence, reckons with topics such as nationalism, sexism, the environment, and the NHS. Debrief is a long-lens look at the decade leading up to the UK's much-criticised response to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Written and performed in a vacuum this is a unique and audacious - some might say hare-brained - comic experiment, in which Simon asks: 'Can you even really call yourself a stand-up comedian if you've never heard a single person laugh?'"

Debrief is available to watch via All 4
