Season 2 of Dead Drunk Detective is on its way soon! Returning to the show are all the key cast and crew of Season 1, including Arfie Mansfield as Det. Johnny Stumbles, Kate Oswald as the long-suffering Betty, Leanna Wigginton as Johnny’s sister Melissa and show-writer Brendan Way.
This season, Johnny takes on foes and allies, old and new, in the next adventures of the undead private detective to be recorded Live in the Rotten Flesh. And not just at any venue. Season 2 will be recorded in the Leicester Square Theatre, home of some of London’s finest comedy podcasts, stand-up performances and plays.
We could not be more thrilled to return to our favourite monstrous neighbourhood and all its infernal inhabitants, and we’re dead excited to be recording it at the pillar of the comedy community that is Leicester Square Theatre.
Sketch, Please! is back with a boiling hot, and we mean boiling hot (to hell with this weather), episode of sketch comedy goodness. Hate job interviews? So do we! Love Batman? We do too. And so does Alfred.
Ever wondered if the supermarket self-checkout was mocking you? Do you “fly on the wings of love”? What about that moment when you disapprove of a friend’s date? All that and more is included in this month’s Sketch, Please!
