Published: 10th October 2019.   Length: 109 mins.

Zach Zucker and Viggo Venn and their permanent director and co-creator Jonny Woolley are like a mainline injection of a comedy drug that hasn't been invented yet. This trio has been around the world four times at some disgustingly young age, winning awards and crazed fans, and revelling in mistakes, misadventures and madness. We talk about their first Edinburgh and how they snatched victory from the jaws of a 10 month old baby, explore their solo work, including Zach's Jack Tucker character and his unique relationship with live direction and sound cues, and discuss breaking the rules, winding the Late'n'Live audience up on purpose, and getting good at being bad.
