Episode 05: Tea, Cake and Casual Violence – SKETCH, PLEASE

Episode 5 of Sketch, Please! is ready to rock your world with an array of sketches that will punch you in your funny bone. The internet has sent us their finest comedy sketches and performance talents and now we have built a sketch show just for you! There might have been a few beers involved so be warned: there is manic cheering and jollity throughout.


Ever wondered what the job application for the X-Men is like? We have your answer! Wondering what your library would be like as a trendy immersive experience? Look no further. We’ve got all this and more written and performed by the finest the internet has to offer.
