A supreme double-bill featuring stand-out acts The Real MacGuffins and Matt Lacy, presenting 40 minutes of their finest sketch comedy. Following highly acclaimed, sell-out appearances at Edinburgh, Brighton, Bath and Leicester Comedy Festivals the Real MacGuffins present a brand new show for Sketchfest 2014!
The Real MacGuffins have made a name for themselves as creators of irreverent, silly and always inventive sketches.
Purveyors of wordplay, wit and physical comedy they’re comedians that go beyond the looking glass to find clever and imaginative sketches that delight both themselves and the audience. The minds of Dan March, Jim Millard and Matt Sheahan, bring to life highly energetic, interactive performances that tend to cause bouts of silliness erupting into something else completely. Get ready for a fun-packed fiesta-thon of the MacGuffins’ best-loved material.
After comic turns in ‘The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff’ (BBC2), ‘Miranda’ (BBC1), ‘Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People’ (BBC3) and the BAFTA award-winning ‘Spy’ (SKY1) and forthcoming comedy feature film ‘Molly Moon The Incredible Hypnotist’ (starring Emily Watson, Ben Miller and Joan Collins). The Real MacGuffins have also written for ‘That Mitchell & Webb Sound’ (BBC Radio 4). Expect another joyous and “charmingly foolish” (Daily Telegraph) show as this dysfunctional sketch group teeter on the edge of chaos.

ON MATT LACEY
Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach. Those who can’t teach, do a comedy show set in a school. Those is Matt Lacey. With two critically-acclaimed years of sketch shows under his belt with The Unexpected Items and double-act Mythbunking, and over seven million views on Youtube (search ‘Gap Yah’), award-winning actor and comedian Matt Lacey presents his debut solo show; a smorgasbord of comic characters with some satire, some silliness and some shouting (not too much, just in case you have sensitive ears).
