Comedian and proud Welshman, Elis James meets some of the nation's best comedy writers and performers to explore the vast Welsh comedy history from pre-wartime to today. They look at how our relationship with stereotypes has changed over time, how Welsh comedians have moved from the social or working men's club into the mainstream and the development of comedy on the airwaves from wartime favourites listened by millions to TV sitcoms that we took to our hearts.
