Best friends since school, Lorna Watson and Ingrid Oliver are well known on the live comedy circuit. They have had three consecutive sell-out Edinburgh Festival shows and appeared in a wealth of comedy greats such as the BAFTA-winning Peep Show, The IT Crowd and We Are Klang.

Characters include the Georgian ladies, Jean and Lou in their prison sketch, and Wills and Kate reminiscing about their wedding day.

Guest stars in Series 1 included: John Barrowman, BAFTA winner Daniel Rigby, Adrian Scarborough, Sophie Thompson, Felicity Montagu, Hugo Speer, Colin Salmon and Perry Benson.

Series 2 sketches include how to escape from a boring conversation; some undercover Brownies; and a pessimistic Bassett Hound.
