Starring Danny Adams, Mick Potts, Clive Webb, Rob Carter,  Shalini Peiris, and Nina Wadia.

Guest Starring - Nadine Doyle, Dane Baptiste, Vicky Hall, Dave Benson-Philips, Luke Cutforth, and Jason Gardiner.

REVIEW- What a breath of fresh air this show is. Two comedy performers in complete synchronicity with each other, bringing old school slapstick to a modern audience. The joy is twofold, you get the comedy itself which ranges from slosh scenes to more knockabout humour, but there's also the joy of watching such skilled performers at work. And at just twelve minutes long, each episode is a perfect pick me up.
