What’s the latest fad diet everyone is desperate to try?
Sat Navs Will Kill Us in 360 VR – Micky Overman, Lynn Ruth Miller, Jordan Brookes
A regular car journey, a regular argument about whether to trust a sat nav, a map or a person. This one is with a twist: it’s filmed in 360 degrees virtual reality so the viewer can choose which way to look, making them the directors of the sketch. The first ever UK comedy sketch to take advantage of this exciting new technology.

A unique from a unique sketch group. The premise is that every single sketch they do has the exact same punchline. A cult hit at Edinburgh 2016, this is their first filmed sketch.
Robert Johnson & The Devil Man – Joz Norris, David Mills
An eerie, mysterious and unique take on the “sell your soul to the devil” cliche. Funny and absorbing.
