THE QUINTESSENTIAL QUICKFIRE SKETCH SHOW
Embracing TikTok's destruction of the human attention-span, the Barrel sits on the fast-forward button to present the quintessential quickfire sketch show. However, this time, a bandit has broken into the production; stealing sound effects, characters, and even dialogue.
“An excellent comedy show” ★★★★ (Broadway Baby, 2022)
★★★★★ (Scottish Daily Mail’s ‘Best of the Rest of the Fest’, 2022)
"The hit-rate of their sketches are high" (The List, 2019)
"An A+ sketch show" (The Brighton Seagull, 2022)
From sentient self-checkout machines to an awkward reunion for the Iceberg and the Titanic, it’s all inside this Barrel! Not to mention returning audience-favourite – the classic guessing-game of ‘Goalkeeper or Crab’.
Combining modern online comedy with good old-fashioned slapstick and wordplay, this a sketch show like no other that puts the speed of the internet onto the stage.
Featuring DazzReviews, as seen on YouTube. Running since 2012, the channel currently sits at almost 100 million lifetime views and just under half a million subscribers.
“Five incredible performers who are guaranteed to make you laugh.” (Broadway Baby, 2022)
“Dropped something? Don’t even think about picking it up, as you may miss an entire sketch.” (The List, 2019)
