McNeil And Pamphilon Go 8-bit!: Late Night Gimp Fight, Nish Kumar, Nat Luurtsema, Will Hartley (Clever Peter), Guy Kelly and Richard Soames (The Beta Males), Paul Foxcroft
"A treat for gamers and non-gamers alike...pure comedy gold" - Broadway Baby
Love videogames? Love comedy? This mashes both together! Sound good? It'll be like GamesMaster off the telly, but in a cupboard.
There'll be guest comedians performing gaming-based comedy stand-up/sketches/songs to make you nerdgasm, as well as battling on classic videogames for Team McNeil (winners) and Team Pamphilon (losers). Each round, the loser will do some horrible punishment which'll make us regret organising this in the first place. What's not to like?!
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
