    Sketch Please OCT 2019

    Sketch Please OCT 2019

    Back with sketches about middle class problems, financially insolvent vampires and… b******t, all from the minds of talented writers from the internet.

    Also from our cast: a heartwarming story about swinging in castles, homemade kefir, and a 7 minute exploration of Star Wars and historical geopolitics. It’s shambolic but quite informative, and we guarantee you will listen to this episode and think, “Ah, I listened to this episode.”

    Presented by Katharine Kerr @katkerrradio
    Starring David Sylvester @dershapeshifter, Julie Flower @julieflower4 and Susan Cunningham.

    Sketches written by Elliot Stewart, Chris Ballard, Wayne Timms, Bryan Burke and Isiah Headen.

    Sketch Please MAY 2019

    Sketch Please MAY 2019

    Recorded on our first May Bank holiday, we spend an inordinate amount of time discussing what doesn’t happen in the latest of Marvel’s Avengers franchise then everyone loses it, leading to some nail-biting editing retrospectively. See if you can spot the points where KK had to cut out these things:

    * Rude jokes about Endgame
    * Soho sex shops
    * Post-party paranoia
    * Bad things happening on good buses
    * General descent into madness

    Meet this month’s supremely nice performers:

    Hannah Tarrington is an actor and comedy performer and has just joined the National Youth Theatre. On the side she helps businesses with their branding.

    Sketch Please NOV DEC 2018

    In November’s Sketch Please, (released in January, sorry, folks) we all go a bit stir crazy pre-christmas, insult one another then make up by losing the plot in an overheated studio. It’s lovely.

    Please enjoy some of November and December’s finest sketches interspersed with curious accents and wild chat from people who spent an evening doing this instead of actual paid work. Pringles were involved. But no Bourbons.
