Lucy and Jon will be joined by some of their closest comedy mates to eat, drink and get very merry during the post-Christmas, pre-New Year lull. Joining the pair to enjoy a festive feast will be fellow comedians Roisin Conaty, Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett. With a few surprise guests along the way, the gang will reflect on the highs and lows of 2021, with misbehaviour and chaos sure to ensue in a rollicking, boozy knees-up.
