In this alternative history show four panellists each deliver an original stand-up comedy set based around an event which happened on the same date as the show at some point in history. They then speculate together on possible alternative causes and outcomes to other events which happened – specifically in the history of Edinburgh – like It Just So Happened. This show will be recorded as a podcast and hosted by comedian Richard Pulsford. As seen at the Leicester, Glasgow, Brighton, Buxton, Ludlow, Bedford, Guildford and Reading Comedy and Fringe Festivals.
