Sabotage

A live sketch recorded at the Glasgow Comedy Festival in March 2006, with sketches and repeating characters from the first series.
A cast of Grant O'rourke, Steven Howie, Jason Arnstein, Laura Donnelly, Jennie Cook and Lisa Gardner take the audience on a comedy trip around Scotland and beyond. Fast moving sketches that grip the audience from the first laugh.
It is a six-part live sketch show is described as being like 'an Edinburgh Festival offering, with a touch of The Goons thrown inů with a Celtic twist'.
Characters include Lord Pargon - a Tolkien-esque warrior trying to get to grips with 21st Century urban living; Detective Normal - a painfully pedantic soul; and Amanda, an over-imaginative tour guide.
The show is performed by Grant O'rourke, Lisa Gardner, Jennie Cook, Steven Howie and Jason Arnstein and written by Norman Ferguson, Tom Brogan, Fraser Campbell, Helen Watson, James Picardo, Andy Bollen and Melbourne-based George Smith.

Sabotage features a mix of TV stars and rising comedy talent, including Kevin Eldon (star of various TV hits, including his own BBC2 show "It's Kevin"); BBC Radio New Comedy Award winner Lucy Beaumont; Chortle Best Newcomer nominee Stuart Hudson; and the rising comedic talents of Benny Boot and Jamie Demetriou.

Recorded at the historic and wonderfully atmospheric Hoxton Hall in Hackney, London, the show is hosted by the founder of Sabotage, Mark Talbot.

Developed from the live comedy night of the same name, Sabotage started life in a Masonic Temple and prides itself on being a comedy show for comedy fans - a unique event where the acts love coming to perform, and the fans seek out something special.

An hour show allows you to hear a fuller set from performers compared to most TV and radio shows, and one in which they can develop their stories and personalities.

Produced by Hat Trick for BBC Radio 4 Extra.
