Each week, Brydon asks his Twitter followers to provide questions for his guests, which he asks after the comedian segment. Brydon interviews two guests, who sit on his sofa while they chat; the musical guest performs at the end of the show (as well as possibly singing with Brydon during their segment). A comedian performs a short stint, with a short interview afterwards by Brydon.

The compilation episodes consist of previously unseen material. The first series compilation was set in the future, hosted by Brydon. The second series clips were hosted by Dai Young, a performer/publican from Wales and Brydon's alleged former comedy partner (in reality Brydon himself in costume).[1][2]
