Narrative-driven sketch show set in a high-security mixed-sex prison in the year 2012, where a motley assortment of inmates are serving time for anything from mass murder to robot rape. And there's a talent show.

The acts are all new talent paired up in new double acts and sketch group formations. They play the prison warden and the inmates - a motley assortment of miscreants and degenerates serving time for everything from mass murder, terrorist offences, and robot rape to being overweight. The sketches take place in the cells and warden's office and culminate in the prison talent show featuring all the inmates.
