EdPreview: Sam and Tom & Siân and Zoë: Double Preview

A bumper pack of previews from alternative comedy’s most up-and-coming alternative comedians.

 

PETER FLEMING AND WILBUR BILB: OVER THE AIRWAVES

Renowned clean boys Sam Nicoresti and Tom Burgess (Winners: So You Think That’s Funny) present a new hour of character comedy. Retired children’s TV pioneer Peter Fleming staggers through a presentation of his legendary BBC programmes and tries to remember who he is and what he’s doing here. Wilbur Bilb is a child detective investigating the paranormal phenomenon of dead galaxies and the mystery of why his father left.

***** “All the joys and horrors of childhood” – Remote Goat

**** “Comedic brilliance” – Three Weeks

  

SIÂN AND ZOË’S LUXURY CRUISE THROUGH THE HORRIFYING VACUUM OF SPACE

There’s one problem with Siân and Zoë’s relaxing mindfulness retreat: it’s in the horrifying vacuum of space. The ship is also on a course for the sun. Okay, two problems.

Between them, Siân and Zoë have had a cameo on Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe, written for Channel 4 Shorts, performed their sketches on BBC Radio 1 and received no relevant space training. Previously called “bewildering” (****Varsity ) and “genuinely hilarious” (The Tab), jump on board for lo-fi sci-fi anarchy.
