We are very excited to announce that we’ll be joining a brilliant night of works for the opening of Theatre N16 – a great new venue up in North London. Here’s a bit about their ethos:
“Our main aim is to make this space the place to come in London for up and coming theatre companies and writers and actors without any large overheads to cripple them before they’ve even got around to making their work. As companies like ideastap go broke and the arts council continues it shrink we feel like it is a vital time for theatre practitioners to be given this sort of opportunity.”
Projects like this make a HUGE difference to artists like us. If you want to help make Theatre N16 into the next hub for new theatre join in with our adventure by donating here. Or if you want to come and give your support in the form of laughter, buy your tickets for our show on Fri 22nd May here!
We are dead chuffed to announce that we’re officially ‘Best New Act’ nominees at London Sketchfest 2015!

A festival celebrating the best up-and-coming writer-performers in comedy, London SketchFest is on a mission to spotlight the best young British comedic talent and bring it all to one place. Their award winners from the past couple years have all gone on to do great things, winning even more awards and receiving development deals for television. It’s an annual showcase of some of the most exciting comedy around for audience and industry alike.
Searching for the hottest new acts in sketch comedy, London SketchFest hosts a competition each year for new and unsigned performers. Judged by a panel of leading industry professionals, these are the best young acts around, performing 20-minutes each for the ‘Best New Act’ award.
The first Competition Show on Friday 1 May will feature US!!!! O’Shea & O’Gaukroger, alongside 3 other new and unsigned acts. Alongside the Judges panel, the audience will also have a chance to vote for their favourite act, helping to decide the Audience Choice Award.
