A Sketchy History (Three Men In A Boot)
By Oliver Jaques | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2016
Cowering below ground, due to the nuclear apocalypse triggered by Brexit, Jack, Olly and Wes are worried that human history is going to be lost. So they’re going to retell it, their way. Many sketch shows use history as a basis well, but unfortunately this isn’t one of them. Most sketches are predictable from the start, and those that do work are laboured over for too long, managing to raise only a few chuckles throughout. Some of the later sketches have a cruder tone, which sit at odds with the silly history at the beginning. However, worse than that is their decision to perform whole sketches sitting on the floor where they can’t be seen by anyone.
