It Just So Happened - an alternative history show

Stand-up comedians at live festival events present short historical ‘on this day’ pieces then discuss some historical topics or people connected to the location where the live show recording takes place. This was a touring show across UK festivals in 2019. In 2020 live videocasts are taking place while Covid-19 restrictions remain in place. Regular podcasts are due to resume in 2021.
