Kiosk of Champions!

It’s ‘boysy’ humour, says Stuart Goldsmith, pointing out that their deliberately flimsy sketches are about pirates, cops and zombies. Goldsmith is ‘pretty’ and Richard Sandling is ‘fat’, he explains, pointing out their similarities to Corden and Horne. Too much pointing out distracts from their likeably shonky set, and those Corden-Horne similarities are a big turn-off.

Richard Sandling and Stuart Goldsmith, 'supremely funny oddballs' (Time Out), sequelise their award-winning 2008 extravaganza. Lo-fi sketches, competent banter, Peloponnesian dancing. 'Funny, fresh, positively Pythonic' (Scotsman). 'Expect big laughs' (Guardian).

The whole point is that although they share similar physical attributes to Horne & Corden but that is where the similarity ends. Kiosk are funny and H & C are not. You're on your own here. Shows are selling out and the Scotsman, Telegraph and Independent on Sunday gave them 4 stars each.
