This event has been and gone.
The ground breaking, law changing, corporate shaking show is back. For 7 years, 6 series and a host of specials, The Mark Thomas Comedy Product caused mayhem on Channel 4’s airwaves. Before The Revolution Will be Televised, Lee Nelson, Dom Joly and Balls of Steel, this was the show that set the agenda. It challenged politicians, cost them their careers, was talked about in Parliament, appeared on the front pages of the Guardian and basically had a ball.
Now Mark and the show’s producer Geoff Atkinson look back at the programme in a series of YouTube broadcast specials. Discussing their favourite clips, Mark and Geoff will be live with guests to discuss the adventure that was bound to cancel itself before the channel got round to it.
