The Hollow Men is a sketch show written and performed by the sketch troupe of the same name. It features a plethora of deranged, deluded and desperate characters.
There's Christophe, the French tutor whose innocent role-playing exercises frequently feature a character not dissimilar to his unfaithful wife.
The boss and secretary whose flirtatious, innuendo-laden office banter is so full of double meaning, its often hard for even them to understand.
Professor Cavendish, whose attempts to explain the finer details of genetic research to his belligerent lab assistant Keith usually end in failure, frustration, or an industrial accident.
Stuart and James, two old school friends who now find themselves working together for a charity. Except they weren't really friends, because Stuart used to be a bully. But that's all behind them now, and James certainly isn't going to abuse his position as Stuart's boss to exact some kind of petty revenge, oh no...
