The Goes Wrong Show: Christmas Special
Cornley RETURN to your screens this Christmas! Tune into BBC One at 7.00pm on 22 December to see their take on the Nativity story, generously funded by a corporate sponsor after the BBC's refusal to pay for any more of the Cornley Dramatic Society’s work.
As ever, all soon descends into chaos; an ingenious pop-up book set proves a physical danger to both cast and crew, the Angel Gabriel develops a firework obsession, the actors inside a donkey have a terrible falling out resulting in unnecessary nudity and there is much more fire than anyone anticipated. Oh, and the baby Jesus is eaten by a sheep. In between, the greatest story ever told is told.
The Goes Wrong Show: The Nativity (1x30) was written by and stars the original founding Mischief Theatre members; Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields alongside Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask. The show is produced by Adrian Pegg (Michael McIntyre’s Big Show) and directed by Martin Dennis (Men Behaving Badly, Black Books). The Executive Producers are Hilary Strong and Kenny Wax for Mischief Screen, Kenton Allen, Saurabh Kakkar and Matthew Justice for Big Talk Productions. The Goes Wrong Show was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer and Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Kate Daughton.
