Spend a magical Christmas with a jolly bearded man. In a shed. Comedian and multimediagician Adam Buxton brings his distinctive mix of songs, animation and internet flotsam to this festive special. If you have never heard his hilarious take on bug-eyed YouTube commenters then you’re in for a treat, but even longtime Adam & Joe fans should find something new.

In the best tradition of telly Christmas specials Adam is joined by some old friends, including poet Tim Key and Buxton’s five-year-old daughter Hope. There’ll be music and laughter and a hefty dose of nostalgia provided by…well, us, as Adam flicks through old copies of Radio Times. It’ll be the best Christmas you’ve ever spent in a shed.


The comedian pays his own unique tribute to Christmas as he introduces a variety of video clips, interviews, animation, poems and songs that encapsulate the festive season. He curates a selection of YouTube comments to illustrate the best and worst of Christmas, before taking a nostalgic look through vintage copies of Radio Times. Tim Key is on hand to read a selection of poems, before Adam compares his own childhood Christmas with that of his five-year-old daughter Hope. He also speaks to music journalist Dorian Lynskey about the Pogues' Fairytale of New York, and joins former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes for a cover of a Christmas classic.
