On Thursday, Radio 4 has a host of new comedy including double-act comedy show The Pin.
‘The Pin’ is a double-act comedy show which sees Alex and Ben revise, tweak and comment on their sketches as they go, deconstructing the boundary between them and the listener, revealing the twisted logicbehind their skewed approach to comedy and life.
This is the third series from The Pin, with their first two series having won them a slew of awards and fans ranging from David Walliams to Ben Stiller.
In this episode, in a desperate bid not to be cut, Alex and Ben are determined to prove they can be educational…
– ‘The Pin prove it’s still possible to play with the conventions of the medium of sketch comedy. The Pin also has a property not shared by as many programmes as you might wish. It will actually make you laugh.’ – The Guardian
– ‘Knowing and inventive. a blast.’ – The Times
– ‘The sketches are funny, and made special by Ben Ashenden and Alexander Owen also examining, subverting and reversing familiar tropes. The material is excellent.’ – Radio Times
