Ep 2: Magic

Episode 2 of 4

Ben and Alex once again find themselves recording their sketch show in their flat but they are soon distracted by a disappearing magician.

The latest series from Ben and Alex, aka "The Pin", is a sketch-sitcom hybrid. The award-winning sketch duo are forced to record their latest series in their flat and the boys are glad of the new creative freedom this opportunity presents, away from the "prying eyes of the BBC". Unfortunately, their creative freedom is short-lived, thanks to numerous intrusions from the boys' unlucky neighbour Maria, Ben's restaurant-reviewing mother and a disappearing magician.
