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.
