With warm blood still on the carpet, shortly after polling day Rory Bremner returns to BBC Two to take a much needed look back at the General Election 2015. Rory picks through the highs and lows of six weeks of fierce electoral campaigning - joined by his crack team of John Bird, Matt Forde and Sara Pascoe - in a mixture of stand-up, sketches and impressions.

And - away from the froth of the election - they'll be examining how much the election can change in any case. With the Parliament on election footing from the start of the year and not due back in earnest till the autumn, government will have run on near autopilot for nine months. And with half of Whitehall up for sale, and other ministries selling their services as private companies, is the significance of this election not who takes over but what it is they take over - and what that heralds for the future?

Filmed in front of a live audience just after the General Election results and only a few days before transmission, Rory brings a mixture of stand-up comedy, sketches and impressions from the world of politics and beyond.
