After an 100% sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013 the show has gone on to enjoy sell out performances at some of the best comedy clubs and festivals in the U.K. as well as Singapore, Norway and Austria. On top of all this live show fun we also have a television adaptation in full development with the team at The Comedy Unit (part of Zodiac Media).

This year over 100 of the absolute best Stand-up and Sketch Comedians will be performing at our shows. After a riotous trial for our Sketch version of the show last year we are programming 3 special nights dedicated to Sketch Comedy, where you'll get to see troupes performing their own sketches and then each others'. Mix that with our 21 nights of Stand-up mayhem and you have a whole month of Comedy Set Swapping hilarity to look forward to.
