Thom Tuck with up-and-coming comedy circuit sketch groups - The Colour Ham, Lead Pencil, and Foil, Arms and Hog - at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. From August 2014.
Thom Tuck presents the pick of the best live sketch groups currently performing on the UK comedy circuit, from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The sketch groups featured in this episode are:
The Colour Ham
A brand new and exciting comedy project based in Edinburgh, written by and starring Colin Cloud, Kevin McMahon and Gavin Oattes. It's where comedy, magic and mindreading come together in a big ball of rock 'n' roll silliness!
Formed in 2012, Lead Pencil are a stylish comedy group that gives you observational sketches with a colourful twist, featuring Maddie Rice, Louise Beresford and Dave Biddy. Imagine the lovechild of Saved by the Bell and Art Attack. That's Lead Pencil and they've made a sketch show by literally sketching it!
Foil, Arms and Hog
Fringe favourites Foil, Arms and Hog are Sean Finegan (Foil), Conor McKenna (Arms) and Sean Flanagan (Hog). Ireland's top comedy trio have sold out the Edinburgh Fringe for five consecutive years and recently completed a world tour of festivals including Chicago, San Francisco and Adelaide, where they won a Fringe Comedy Award.
Producer: Gus Beattie.
A Comedy Unit production for BBC Radio 4.
