There will also be archive interviews with Sharon Horgan, Charlie Brooker, People Just Do Nothing, Rosie Jones, James Acaster, John Finnemore, Mackenzie Crook, Greg Davies, Rachel Parris, Nish Kumar, Katherine Ryan, Johnny Vegas, Josie Long, Alexei Sayle and more. Plus highlights from the Comedy Club on the road - from the Edinburgh Festival, the Machynlleth Comedy Festival, and the Cheltenham Literary Festival.

We also mark the occasion with a specially commissioned short-form documentary series: Comedy Club - 100 Glorious Years which charts the history of the Comedy Club with archive of landmark performances and presentation from the 1920s right through to the present day. (This is of questionable historical merit as it is entirely fictional and really very silly).
