Ford and Akram are back.
Returning to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year following the success of their debut show, Humdinger, which was one of The List's 'Ones to Watch' in 2011, they are proud to present their new show, Bamp! - an adventure story told with panache and homemade props.

Join them as they perform sketches, sing a bit, possibly dance, and do bad impressions of people you don't know (ie Yasmine's Mother).

Ford and Akram met on the first day of their training at RADA. It soon became apparent that prestigious dramatic training was wasted on them, and they took to writing sketches together and hanging out and being silly, making up terrible excuses as to they why couldn't attend their classical text classes. The best one being they got trapped between two locked doors.

Now favourites on the London sketch circuit, Ford and Akram recently filmed a pilot together for BBC3/Tiger Aspect, and are currently working on developing a sitcom of their own together. Between them they have numerous radio and TV credits, including Misfits, Peep Show, Teaboys, and Doc Martin.

No excuses, no locked doors or faulty boilers, they'll be at the Attic every day at 3pm. For sure.
