Another chance to hear Alex and Ben in their weird twist on the double-act sketch show. Strap in for a 15 minute delve in to a world of oddness performed in front of a live studio audience. The Pin are an award-winning comedy duo, and legends of Edinburgh festival. They deconstruct the sketch form, in a show that exists somewhere between razor-sharp smartness and utterly joyous silliness. After a sold-out run in Edinburgh, and a string of hilarious performances across BBC Radio 4 Extra, BBC 3, Channel 4, and Comedy Central, this is The Pin’s debut solo show for Radio 4. Join them as they celebrate, make, collapse and rebuild their jokes, each other, and probably the radio too. For fans of Adam and Joe, Vic and Bob, and Fist of Fun - a show of absurd offerings from two loveable idiots. 'Reinventing sketch comedy before our very eyes.' ***** The List 'Eviscerating their chosen form completely.' **** The Sunday Times 'A very classy, very funny show indeed.' **** The Telegraph 'Adept at finding laughs in surprising places.' **** The Times 'A genuine boundary pusher.' **** London is Funny
