Episode 4 of 4

Rising stars of the live sketch group circuit present their particularly British style of wit. With Nick Gadd. From 2015.

Sketch troupe So On and So Forth - featuring John Sherman, Nick Gadd and Martin Allanson - have performed together for the last five years, refining their particularly British style of sketch comedy. They have recently recruited top comedy actress Alison Thea-Skot to bring some class the proceedings.

So On and So Forth is a sketch group with a very clear, slightly nihilistic perspective on the world - everything is funny if you look at it the wrong way.

In 2011 they headed to the Edinburgh Fringe where they performed several shows a day, picked up rave reviews and developed webbed feet. With a growing reputation in the live arena they started filming sketches whenever possible hoping to revel in the untold riches of YouTube. Later that year they won the Cofilmic award for Best Sketch, and one of their online sketches featured on Comedy Central's hit US show Tosh.0 as Video of the Week which helped to ratchet up just shy of a quarter of a million hits on their YouTube page.

Later in 2012 they were commissioned by BBC Worldwide to produce yet more sparkly new web sketches. In 2013 the team featured on Radio 4's very own show Sketchorama and, following those stand out performances and their online work, they have been given the opportunity to make their own series.
