London Sketchfest 2016: Best New Act Competition One

London Sketchfest returns for its fourth annual festival

Each year London Sketchfest searches for the hottest sketch comedy acts in the country. One of the most exciting shows of the festival, the Best New Act Competition brings 12 unsigned acts together for an annual showcase of the best comedy Britain has to offer. This time around they present you with Making Faces, Two Plus Ones, Noah + Jordan and Dirty White Boys. Lineup: - Making Faces This band of weird and wonderful merrymakers create strange and lively character sketches that blend together poetry, music and standup to make for wonderfully fun and daft comedy. Their set is sure to be packed with verbal virtuosity, intriguing characters and off the beaten boulevard situations. “Hilarious - this show is a bucket-list full of laughs.” – Broadway Baby - Two Plus Ones From the writers and performers of last year’s Cambridge Footlights five star sellout, international tour show, comes a fresh new sketch group with a unique concoction of the mad and the mundane, moving seamlessly from surreal character comedy to bold musical parodies. After enjoying a critically acclaimed Fringe show as a sketch group called Mothers; Archie Henderson, Luke Sumner and Joshan Chana return as the newly formed Two Plus Ones. Having found their feet performing sloppy gags for sloppier students, they’re now stepping out to make their professional debut. “Not one to be missed – at any cost.” – Varsity - Noah + Jordan Award-winning comedy duo, Noah and Jordan, are writers, producers and actors famed for their online comedy shows. Creating big, slick and irreverent sketch comedy with bright and bold characters, Noah and Jordan are two new kids on the block with a diverse range of talents and a toy box full of killer sketches. - Dirty White Boys As yet undiscovered comedians, Chazz Redhead and Jack Robertson love making jokes almost as much as they hate each other. Together they have joined forces to create kick-ass sketch duo Dirty White Boys. It's Morecambe and Wise meets David Fincher in this fast-paced twist on pseudo-vaudeville comedic vignettes. Expect loud noises, high energy silliness, and rather dramatic tonal shifts. "A finely honed hour on par with Mitchell and Webb." – The List Over 16s only. Doors open: 6:10pm. Show starts: 6:40pm. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. Please note that acts are subject to change without notice. Concession includes: students, those over 65, disabled and emergency services.
