Chortle Award Winners 2010
Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominees 2009
You may already know them as creators of YouTube sensations ‘Facebook in Real Life’ and ‘Wii Breakfast’, and now the sketch comedy stars of Edinburgh and Montreal Comedy Festivals – Idiots of Ants (aka. Andrew Spiers, James Wrighton, Elliott Tiney and Benjamin Wilson) – are coming to Melbourne for the very first time.
Prepare to witness the most bizarre revelation of World War 2, the launch of the new Idiots of Ants computer game (‘Urban Sword Fighter 3’) and find out what really happens in the male toilet. There’ll be some jokes your Dad might like, a hen night prank gone horribly horribly wrong, and find out the answer to the immortal question… ‘if an air guitar falls over in a forest does it make a sound?’.
It’s also the only show at the Festival with a sketch performed entirely in German (don’t worry, there are subtitles).
“It’s simply sketch comedy how it should be done.****” Chortle, UK

“I laughed so hard that I had to make an emergency dash to the loo.” The Telegraph, UK
“Great, original, focused comedy writing, performed by a consummately talented foursome.*****” The Scotsman, UK
“A joy to watch…… at the top of their game.” The Independent, UK
