Comedy from the BBC, including new pilots
Recorded on May 22nd 2010 at Vicar Street, Dublin, Simon Amstell's acclaimed live show, Do Nothing, proved to be a hit across the UK and in New York and also impressed at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. A departure from his popular Never Mind the Buzzcocks presenting role, Do Nothing - Live reveals an awkward and honest side to Simon.
It's official; class is back! Riots on the street, old-Etonians in government, a workforce on strike, Downton Abbey, The King's Speech, the royal wedding and vajazzling... In this one-off special, Frank Skinner is joined by comedians Micky Flanagan, Roisin Conaty and Miles Jupp to assess whether class is still relevant in the 21st century. Probing analysis meets comedy chat, as our comics become intrepid reporters, examining the subject through their own unorthodox reports. The well-heeled Miles attempts to turn himself into a working-class hero. Newly bourgeois Micky asks why he still hates modern art. Salt-of-the-earth Roisin seeks love across the class divide. Frank and the team dissect their findings in front of a studio audience as they explore the funny side of class.
