Never miss another 'The Pin' show
Work In Progress: The Pin, Liam Williams
The Pin are a 3 man sketch act. Their debut Edinburgh show last year was a total sell-out, and now they're working on material for this year's show.
“Perfect, cripplingly funny” The List
“Heavily tipped for future stardom” The Guardian
“Innovative, enjoyable, inventive” Time Out
Liam Williams is one third of critically acclaimed sketch group 'Sheeps.' He reached the final of Amused Moose and So You Think You’re Funny in 2010 and regularly plays The Boat Show, Monday Club, Invisible Dot and Up The Creek.
“Great voice, smart gags” Chortle
“The quality is maintained throughout… fast, innovative, polished” Three Weeks

Winners at the inaugural London SketchFest for 'Best Sketch Show’, The Pin are a sketch act heavily tipped for future stardom by The Guardian. A couple of ex-Cambridge Footlighters, Alex Owen and Ben Ashenden create sharp and precise sketch comedy that tends to exceed expectations, giving them a reputation for 'nailing it'.
'The Pin are so good it might actually make you sick' (The Skinny)
'The precision was astounding. Faultless comic timing' (Three Weeks)
'The talented young double act who stole the show. This duo can go far' (The Daily Telegraph)
'A joy to watch. It's silly and whimsical, but ruthlessly comedic, such is the gag rate, and it's performed in a no-frills style that suggests they're super-confident in their writing' (http://www.Londonisfunny.com).
