In the run-up to the 2015 General Election, Matt Forde asks some of Britain's best-loved comedians what they would do if they were elected Prime Minister.

The Alternative Vote will see Matt Forde joined by top panellists and comedians who'll be asked for their manifesto for the laws they'd introduce and what they'd look to ban from everyday life, if they were given the top job at 10 Downing Street.

Matt Forde says: "I'm very excited to be making a comedy show about politics on the verge of the most chaotic general election in history. It's not heavy, it's just a group of people messing about and pretending to be politicians. If it's good enough for the Lib Dems, it's good enough for me."
