Max and Iván

Like a YouTube-era update of Charlie Brooker’s spoof listings site TVGoHome, this two-man sketch show satirises and subverts telly staples. With great energy and slick audiovisuals, the camera-friendly performers spend exactly the right amount of time on each concept, be it a two-liner about Antiques Roadshow or a cross-over between footie and arts commentary shows, but sadly bring it to a halt with a meandering finale.

C central, 0845 260 1234, until 31 Aug, 6.55pm, £8.50–£10.50 (£7.50–£9.50).
