First broadcast: on BBC Two EnglandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Wales

Comedy series which features quick-witted comedians who are thrust into unfamiliar scenarios and forced to improvise their way out of them.

Sporting a fake identity and with no time to prepare, the comedians will be pushed to the limit as they desperately try to adapt to their challenge. Each challenge begins with the performer receiving a dossier they won't be allowed to open until minutes before their assignment begins.

This fearless cast of the best new comedy talent, will be guided through their assignment by the Wing Commander who will communicate with them via an earpiece. Their mission will contain several 'hit points' - pre-planned obstacles, which increase in difficulty as the challenge progresses.The Wing Commmander will be pushing the comedians and will secretly trigger each new part of the 'hit'.

In the first show, performer Jonny Sweet pretends to be a careers advisor and, without any preparation, delivers some dubious tips to a group of jobseekers. Meanwhile, Matthew Crosby takes on the role of leading environmentalist Julian Glacier and, with no time to prepare, delivers a made up-on-the-spot lecture to a group of budding planet savers. Will they be able to convince the public they are experts in a field they know nothing about? Or will their audience realise they are Winging It? Show less
