It was broadcast on RTÉ One on 9 November 2008 at 18:30, whilst the DVD was released on 15 November 2008, with over forty minutes of bonus material.

The special features international comedians such as Spike Milligan, John Cleese, Peter Cook and Billy Connolly, who all regularly visited The Late Late Show, and Irish comedians such as Tommy Tiernan, Patrick Kielty, Dermot Morgan, Brendan O'Carroll, D'Unbelievables, Dylan Moran and Kevin McAleer, who all appeared on the show early in their careers. Unplanned sequences are also reflected upon, such as Lenny Henry's fall from his chair and Byrne being attacked by Emu.
