Filmed at the O2 Arena in December last year, the hour-long film features sets from some of the best of the British comedy circuit including Eddie Kadi, Ola Labib, Slim, Thanyia Moore, Babatúndé Aléshé and Mo Gilligan plus music from The Compozers. The film also includes intimate backstage access and raw up-close conversation with the cast as they discuss the significance of the history making event.

Mo says: "I'm so proud of the black British comedy circuit that I started on. The scene and it's exceptional talent have nurtured and supported me since the very start of my career. I am thrilled to share our culture and bring together some of the best comedy talent on offer in this country right now."
