Further details

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 was recorded at the historic and wonderfully atmospheric Hoxton Hall in Hackney, London, and features a mix of radio and TV stars, and rising comedy talent, including Kevin Eldon, the star of Radio 4's Kevin Eldon Will See You Now, and the British Comedy Award-nominated BBC Two show It's Kevin; BBC Radio New Comedy Award-winner 2012, Lucy Beaumont; Chortle Best Newcomer nominee Stuart Hudson; and rising comedic talents in the form of Benny Boot and Jamie Demetriou.
