Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Panel Prize Winners, creators of Holmes and Watson and The Wrestling and total sell out Edinburgh Fringe 2011: Max and Ivan return to The Pleasance with an epic narrative sketch comedy heist.

Six ex-cons, one final job. The Hacker. The Smooth Talker. The Mercenary. The Driver. The Architect. And Graham (he does HR, mainly). All are reunited by the Ringleader to conduct one final sting - taking down a sinister oligarch. If we told you any more, we'd have to kill you. Luckily, that's more or less the plot.
Max and Ivan are... (really) Max Olesker (taller, curly-haired, a bit Jewish and a bit more foppish) and Ivan Gonzalez (shorter, knitwear fan, formerly chubby). Together they write and perform comedy at the likes of Bestival and Latitude Festivals and last year at the Hammersmith Apollo, as well as running leading sketch and character comedy night Max & Ivan's Roffle Club monthly at London's Leicester Square Theatre. Max & Ivan can be heard in BBC Radio 4's Sketchorama this summer.

Max and Ivan are... Con Artists is directed by Jessica Ransom (Horrible Histories, Doc Martin, Armstrong & Miller).
