For the first time ever, URB is doing a free audience show at The Weston Studio for one of its podcast series. And what better time could there be to have a good chilled out laugh than this Friday afternoon before the post-exam shenanigans start?
The Our Little Village podcasts have been described as “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” meets “Midsomer Murders” for the comically unhinged. In each podcast a team of students is randomly given fictional roles in a village with a silly name, and then they have to improvise a round-by-round story which leads to their comical and gruesome demises. Afterwards they’re turned into fully-fledged radio dramas with music and sound effects.
The series was nominated for Best Project in Media at the SU Activity Awards, and has appeared several times in Mixcloud’s Comedy and Student Radio Charts. This one-off audience show is the two-game finale for Season One.
URB’s Student Radio Award-winning producer Darius promises that the 3pm audience show this Friday will be a ton of fun for the audience who witness the storytelling carnage, and also for those of them who are adventurous enough to join the main cast and take part in the games!
The show’s main cast includes outstandingly creative sketch writers, actors and stand-up comedians who’ve previously worked with CWIPS, BUST and BUSMS. Past stories have involved villagers being hurled off dams with Zumba, overthrown by super-intelligent animals during an impassioned rip-off of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb,” and even stuck in a political game of sabotage involving a hairdresser, mayor, and a TV personality during an intense gardening show.
The Our Little Village audience show is a first for University Radio Bath, and we hope to see as many possible students at The Weston Studio for this one-off as possible! Tickets are free and available now.
