Featuring five musicians: Joe Auckland (trumpet and banjo), Mark Brown (sax and clarinet), Will Collier (double bass and guitar), Ben Reynolds (drums and percussion) and Joe Stilgoe (piano and keyboard) plus a different comedian guest each show, "there's more joy and jollity to be had here than any 28 minute show has the decency to expect."
