Straitjacket Comedy Trio

Comedy Ladder Position: 23=

Points: 10

Straitjacket is a North East comedy group which writes original comedy. A lot of their material has been transferred to the screen by the three members Tom Bennett, Keith Dickinson and Ian Todd.

The three were fortunately reunited after a long period apart and decided to do their own brand of comedy with a blend of darkness, randomness and the surreal. This original blend of comedy has helped establish the group as regular contributors to BBC Radio One Show The Milk Run.

They are currently contributing to a brand new sketch show on E4 and continuing to produce sketch shows for the screen which are regularly seen in the Newcastle area and at comedy festivals across the UK.

Straitjacket are imaginative, intelligent and adventurous with their material both in its content, structure and presentation in an attempt to distance the audience from reality through their original comedy.

“A good role reversal gag. Beautifully pitched. I think the joke's done after the first bit of exasperation. This would grace any TV sketch show.”   (4Laughs_...)

“I think that the simplicity of it is great but i think you should either go for a longer clip of him trying to walk down the street and walking in a cirle or something like that. If you are going for that one great laugh then the prank fall is a difficult thing to get just right, why not try having him walking into something and banging his head - maybe as he tries to walk around his own home? but a fun concept that has great potential”   (C4_Commi...) “This is a funny simple idea. Good voice over. I'm not sure if I like the overacting. Part of me thinks it helps with the silliness and part of me thinks you could act it more serious and still get the comedy. This set up could be expanded, either with this ailment or a series of strange ailments. It's a clever parody of the sympathy technique of charity ads.”   (4Laughs_...)
