The Mad Bad Ad Show is a British comedy panel shown weekly on Channel 4[1] which is made by Objective Productions and hosted by Mark Dolan.


The premise of the show is based around answering questions about and related to advertisements, with the two team captains, Mark Watson and Micky Flanagan, each also making an advertisement of their own for a fictitious product which they also have to invent.

The programme consists of two teams, each featuring, alongside the captains, one other comedian and one advertising professional.
