Eddie Mair narrates this new documentary about how comedians can generate vast sums of money from the corporate world - from making after-dinner speeches to appearing in TV commercials. The first episode reveals what happened when a British stand-up decided to create a company trading on laughs, while other comics explain why they think taking part in adverts compromises their creativity and integrity. Contributors include John Cleese, Rhod Gilbert, Jo Brand, Arthur Smith, Mark Thomas, Clive Anderson and Barry Cryer.
