All Star Happy Hour



Mo Gilligan


Production company for Channel 4, 4 May to 25 May 2020 (4 episodes in 1 series) (but see trivia below)


Cacophonous quarantine games with The Big Narstie Show co-host Mo Gilligan.

Key moments

Serial game show contestant Carolynne Selway appearing surprised at being picked to appear on the programme. You must have some confidence in getting on by now…


"Explosion for no reason" - which followed Gilligan pressing a button on his control panel to sound one. This could never have aired in 2002.


Gilligan himself. The series was based on a series of Instagram games Gilligan had played earlier during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Theme music

For a show seeking to establish Mo Gilligan as a standalone star, it must have rankled that the theme tune (for the first episode anyway) was Big Narstie's biggest hit, Craig David's When the Bassline Drops.


One episode encountered technical difficulties and had to be replaced by an emergency repeat of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. The show did eventually air half an hour later on Instagram Live. The first episode also had its problems; the episode had also been due to feature Maya Jama, but she had not connected into the programme's network, nor was able to be contacted, leaving Gilligan spending much of the show pleading viewers to get a message to her throughout the show.

All episodes were promoted as Mo Gilligan's All Star Happy Hour.
