Bob and Jim return with more inspired silliness following last year's hit, Modern Urges. Along with their trademark charmingly cheeky audience interactions and electric uke pop covers, the show will feature a sťance, the odd bit of mime, and an exclusive demonstration of the gadget Steve Jobs was working on when he died. Watch out for interruptions from the duo's evil nemeses, Barry and Martin, and a very special appearance from legendary producers Dan Kapacinski and Tom Selby-Gummeridge, the men behind 'cockney' neo-vaudeville phenomenon, Bob and Jim.

Bob and Jim appear regularly on the comedy circuit and at festivals and host three popular London residencies. They were Musical Comedy Awards Finalists 2012 and are currently working on various development projects including TV and radio sitcom pilots.
