Luke Rollason's Planet Earth is a low-budget, one-man nature documentary set in a future where our worst predictions came true - following ecological collapse, thousands of endangered species are extinct, including the BBC. But one plucky (and unpaid) intern isn't giving up, and right on programming schedule, we're getting series three. Armed with obsolete office supplies and a surreal imagination, nature's weirdos are brought back to life by the 'hugely entertaining' (Chortle.co.uk) Luke Rollason. 'A hilariously fun hour of clowning' (BroadwayBaby.com). Nominated for the ONCA Green Curtain Sustainability Award.

Fringe Q&A: If you had a gun...

We asked some of the comedians at the Fringe, 'If you had a gun with one bullet in it, what would you do?'... We thought this was a smart question, but comedy duo The Pin have undermined it.
