The Death Hilarious and Ben Pope’s sketch group Princes of Main were part of the line-up at London SketchFest 2016.
The Death Hilarious performed as part of a double bill with Mixed Doubles on Sunday 6th November, and Princes of Main were one of the Best New Act contenders on the same day.
The Death Hilarious went on to win Sketch Screen 2016 for their short Anne & Joel.
Mixed Doubles + The Death Hilarious
It’s towners versus out of towners in this weird and wacky show featuring London-based Mixed Doubles and Welsh-bred The Death Hilarious. Expect to be pushed to the threshold of silly and dark as these two wonderfully polarised acts bring their oddball brand of humour to life.
The Death Hilarious
The Death Hilarious was Wales’ best kept dirty little secret until one day they ventured over the bridge and ended up finding a rich seam of evangelical support.
The sketch duo now bring their South Wales valleys-tinged brand of mayhem to London to make their very first appearance at the festival and share their dark and twisted ways with us.
“…exciting…a rare and unique voice. A Death Hilarious sketch is where hell shares a partition wall with your woodchip-lined living room…where Coronation Street meets The Exorcist…and it is entirely fresh and magical” (Stand Up For Comedy)
