Developed from the live comedy night of the same name, Sabotage started life in a Masonic Temple and prides itself on being a comedy show for comedy fans - a unique event where the acts love coming to perform, and the fans seek out something special.
An hour show allows listeners to hear a fuller set from performers compared to most television and radio shows, and one in which they can develop their stories and personalities.
This show is recorded at the historic and wonderfully atmospheric Hoxton Hall in Hackney, London, and features a clutch of award winners including So You Think You Are Funny?'s Aisling Bea, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees Mike Wozniak and James Acaster, Edinburgh Comedy Best Newcomer Award nominee Liam Williams, and Ben Mellor. The show is hosted by the founder of Sabotage, Mark Talbot.
