The Act

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’. Under the hood everything is intricate and sophisticated, demonstrating talented-workmanship and when you put it into action, great comedy, that is smooth, clear and to the point.

'The Pin are so good it might actually make you sick' ★★★★★ (The Skinny)

'The precision was astounding. Faultless comic timing' ★★★★★ (Threeweeks)

'The talented young double act who stole the show. This duo can go far' ★★★★ (The 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' ★★★★ (
