You have to be joking? Mr Thing


The joke that you loved but no one else did?

We made a short film where Hitler spent a summer at a theatrical retreat learning to act as if trapped in a box and keeping a diary.  He later released it as the book ‘Mime Camp’

It didn’t go down that well…there are some things you just shouldn’t joke about. Like mime.
The joke that worked but you are not so proud that it had?

We write a new show everyday and part of that is a custom game in the middle of the show for that evening’s guest.

Once we had a photographer on and we had run out of time to create the game so went with our first and worst idea…He had to guess what we’d taken an out of focus picture of.  It was limes.  The game was called ‘blurred limes’ (backed up by the house band playing the song.)  It went down surprisingly well!  There are some things you should always joke bout.  Like limes.


The comedian(s) that made you want to be a comedian?

We grew up together and use to stay up late listening to old cassettes of Morecambe & Wise or the Goon Show or old VHS of The Muppet Show and Tommy Cooper.  They were all our heroes.


The last thing that made you cry with laughter?

We can’t hold it together when something goes wrong (which is most nights for us)  We’re obsessed with blooper videos on YouTube.  The Will Ferrell one with the plums…If you know it you know it.
