Justin Edwards tries his best to control Mel Giedroyc and David Mounfield as they team up for a gleeful half hour of sketches and musical comedy.

The show features a glorious array of sketches and music courtesy of the show's very own house band - Jason Hazeley on piano and David Reed of The Penny Dreadfuls on drums. They will also be joined by a mystery special guest, who will take centre stage in a thrilling radio drama, if Justin gets it written in time, and if Mel remembers the lines, and if Dave remembers to turn up.

Justin Edwards says: "I am delighted to be once again sharing the stage with such theatrical luminaries as Mel Giedroyc and Dave Mounfield. A true footsoldier of the theatre, dear Mel is such a brave performer, and constantly surprises me with her bold acting choices, whilst Dave has almost mastered the art of making tea."
