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, changing to live videocasts while Covid-19 restrictions were in place, before reverting back to regular shows and podcasts in 2021.

Review of the live show at Buxton Fringe 2021

"Pulsford is a charming host and we finished with some little known facts about Buxton and it’s German twin Bad Nauheim, and a lovely tribute to Buxton’s Tim Brooke-Taylor who would have been 81 on the day. Luckily for you it’s all been recorded for Richard’s podcast, so look out for it"
