How Do I Get Up There?

Think back over the last couple of years... how many new TV sketch shows can you name? Hardly any. Yet sketch comedy is booming on the live comedy circuit. Here's a pilot from one of the groups that have been impressing in the clubs: they're confusingly called 'How Do I Get Up There?'. There's lots of promise shown in this pilot, including an amazing horse impression. Check them out, but never invite them for a drink - you'll discover why towards the end of the show. BBC2 Scotland, 10pm. Interview

Also: Repeats, like Russell Howard's Good News. Schedule
