Sketch show in which a guest host presents an entertainment show without a script.

Across each programme, the guest host takes on roles in a number of topical sketches as they're placed into a series of unconventional situations, with no hint at what's going to take place next.

The format also sees them co-host a satirical news show, present their own chat show, and even play host to a game show with real life contestants. Each segment warmly celebrates the guest host's life and career whilst also providing topical comedy.

Leading the star through this immersive and adrenaline-charged experience will be a troupe of talented improvisers and character comedians - directed by Tom Parry from award winning sketch group Pappy's.
