Alex Brooker: Viewers don't define me by my disability

When comedian Alex Brooker was hired to appear on The Last Leg he was initially put on a nine-day contract. Which isn't surprising. After all, the programme was only supposed to run for two weeks, alongside the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. Brooker, who was working as a sports journalist at the time, assumed that once the tournament concluded, so too would the series. But then, the team started noticing how much momentum was building around it.

The lighthearted TV responses to lockdown have been abundant so far, from video-linked episodes of Have I Got News For You to Matt Lucas's sketches and Grayson Perry's Art Club. Yet, none have quite managed to capture the mix of anxiety, uncertainty and unexpected humour many of us have been experiencing - which is where The Last Leg comics come in. Live from Melbourne, London and Huddersfield, the trio will present their typically incisive take on the week's events.
