Series 2, Episode 3 - Stranded!

Hosts Ali Official and Athena Kugblenu are joined by Toussaint Douglass, Adam Flood and Holly Hall, for an episode of the sketch show written by public submissions. Well if they can get out of the basement that is. And this week, all sketches, voicenotes and one-liners are all on the topic of "Stranded!" Expect a forgetful woman fleeing the Titanic, a reluctant phone-a-friend on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and a new service to help fragile men with broken down cars.
