The Pin are screwed. They just can't write a sketch that they like. In fact they don't really seem to understand sketches at all. Armed with their unique brand of deconstructive "intellectual slapstick" (Sunday Times) they take the audience through a retrospective look at their botched sketch attempts, desperate to work out where they've been going wrong. As the hour progresses, they start to learn some pretty important lessons, culminating in a brand new ten seconds of material. Ten seconds isn't much, but what if it's the best ten seconds of comedy ever...?
