Trojan Donkey is a hidden camera comedy that takes all that's good in 'old style' covert filming to show us how funny life can be when we think no one is watching.

With a cast of strange but lovable characters, Trojan Donkey seeks out situations to confuse and engage the public as they go about their everyday lives.

It's a sketch show that the 'straight man' doesn't realise that he/she is participating in.

Trojan Donkey is adapted from an Irish series called Naked Camera and features PJ Gallagher, Jim Nugent and Sharon Mannion in various roles. It was filmed on location in Glasgow and Liverpool.
