Ben Ashenden and Alexander Owen have filmed in the streets around London and then given the footage their own voice over.

They explain that Overheard is "a comedy show with a genuinely original twist - we've covertly filmed members of the public having conversations, then recorded our own dialogue to replace theirs. The result is a unique hybrid of a hidden camera format and a sketch show, as seemingly mundane situations are given a surreal slant, and regular people are re-imagined as bizarre characters. Presented as a stream of snippets of ordinary city life, this show packs all the strangest things you've ever overheard whilst wandering around into four five minute episodes."
