Funny Business Episode 2 of 3

Eddie Izzard, David Baddiel, Rhod Gilbert and Jo Brand talk frankly about today's stand-up comedy business and the managers and agents who have helped the top stars earn millions. The documentary reveals the back room deals and negotiations which can make the difference between success and failure, including an extraordinary visit to the BBC archives to uncover never before seen contracts reflecting Morecambe and Wise's pay negotiations in the 1960s and 70s.
