London Sketchfest: Pappy’s (special opening show)
May 1, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm£13
Britain’s most beloved live sketch group, Pappy’s is a British three-man comedy act, composed of comedians Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby and Tom Parry. Performing together for the best part of a decade, they have been nominated twice for Best Show at the Edinburgh Festival in 2007 and 2012; won the Chortle Award for Best Sketch Performers twice in 2008 and 2013; and their hit podcast, Flatshare Slamdown, won a Loaded Lafta Award in 2012. In early 2010, Pappy’s also became the first British act to perform at San Francisco SketchFest. They have been seen in their own studio sitcom, Badults on BBC3 and individually they have been seen on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Miranda, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Phoneshop, Meet The Parents, Animal Antics and Watson & Oliver. A distinctive sketch group with no recurring characters, plenty fourth-wall-breaking and a propensity to launch into raucous sing-alongs.
‘One of the finest sketch troupes of the last decade’ ★★★★★ (Guardian)
‘The sheer joy with which these men deliver their skits and lines makes Pappy’s irresistible’ ★★★★★ (Metro)
‘A beautifully constructed pyramid of lunacy in which physical and verbal gags fly around at a dizzying pace’ ★★★★★ (Chortle)
