George Orwell wrote an essay on the perfect pub. A fictitious pub called The Moon Under Water. With the help of the audience, James, as seen on "Ricky Gervais' Extras" and "Russell Howard's Good News", designs the perfect pub.

James grew up in a West Country pub, and has toured the world as a comedian, but now he has returned to his roots, pubs. 29 close per week and they need saving. Dowdeswell and his audience are just the people to do it.

It's the ultimate happy hour where you'll discover beer for dogs, why it was illegal to buy a round during the First World War and why girls taste better than boys.

Dowdeswell has appeared on numerous TV shows including Russell Howard's Good News (BBC) and Extras (BBC) where he played the Count in the David Bowie episode.
