A two-hour romp through the story of ten years that saw comedy finally arrive centre stage.

The Absolutely Fabulous star recounts the story of a decade during which she became an international star. Comedy became the new rock 'n roll, packing out stadiums once reserved for pop stars. 'Cool Britannia' was born. Frank Skinner and David Baddiel were heroes for the 'New Lads'. Catchphrase comedy ruled the roost thanks to The Fast Show. The Royle Family's gritty realism changed the face of sitcom forever.

Jennifer gets to the heart of the decade in question sharing anecdotes with Dawn French, Adrian Edmondson, Vic and Bob, David Baddiel, Paul Whitehouse and her Ab Fab sidekick, Joanna Lumley.

Other comedy stars appearing include Adam and Joe, Ardal O'Hanlon, Reece Shearsmith, John Thomson, Arabella Weir, Patrick Marber, and Rebecca Front.
