You have to be joking? Mack and Salt

The joke that you loved but no one else did?

M: I wrote a very extended gag about Colditz Castle that I was convinced would DEFINITELY read.

S: It did not.

M: No it really didn’t.

S: I’m not sure there’s ever been that much silence.

 

The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?

S: We wrote a throwaway line about me pissing myself.

M: Oh my god yeah and it became one of the biggest laughs of the show.

S: Urine.

M: Never gets old.

 

The comedians that made you want to be a comedian?

S: French and Saunders, for absolutely sure.

M: Yeah, as generic as that answer is- it’s true.

S: They were just so funny and smart and doing so many different things and they always looked like they were having the best time ever and as a kid or teenager that was like ‘obviously if that’s a job I will be doing that please’.

 

The last thing that made you cry with laughter?

M: We laugh the whole time in rehearsals

S: Yeah- we do a lot of improv around the characters and Harry (Trevaldwyn) who plays Dylan in the show is just ridiculously funny.

M: As are the rest of the cast- it’s a good job we’re writing it because we can even it out by giving ourselves the funniest lines.

S: We joke, we joke, we’re as funny, everyone is funny and all the lines are funny…

M…please see our show .
