Two Episodes of MASH

Two Episodes of MASH

When stand-up comedians Diane Morgan and Joe Wilkinson met at the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year in 2006, they decided to pair up to form the now critically-acclaimed Two Episodes of MASH, a sketch show with a heavy emphasis on the absurd.

With Diane’s credits including Mock The Week and Phoenix Nights, and Joe not only winning the 2006 Hackney competition but also having supported Alan Carr and Russell Howard, these are two comedians at the height of their game.

A pilot of Two Episodes of MASH recently aired on BBC Radio 2, receiving some great reviews in the press. 2010 will be their third appearance at the Fringe, giving you have the chance to catch it live before it breaks into the big time.

We asked Diane and Joe a little about their show and plans, and received answers in their own inimitable style…

Tell us a little bit about your show – where’s it happening, what’s it about, why should people come to see it?

Our show is in the Pleasance Dome at 4.20pm.

We describe the show as ‘Low key, mundane glamour’ and you should come and see it as there is a couple of opportunities to win a screen print of an ostrich.

How will you be promoting your show?

We will be promoting the show in the traditional Victorian way.

What are you most looking forward to about coming back to Edinburgh?

The best thing about going back to Edinburgh is seeing old friends and seeing their shows and taking a brass rubbing of a different part of the castle.

And what are you hoping for?

We are hoping for lots of people to come to the show and hopefully enjoy it.

Last year Diane won a few quid on a scratch card so that’s going to be hard to top.

If money was no object, what publicity stunt would you do to promote your show?

We would give out those chocolate cakes with cornflakes in them or buy a large bell.

Who else are you planning or hoping to see?

Daniel Kitson, Ginger and Black, David O’Doherty, Tom Wrigglesworth and loads of others.

What do you have planned for after the Fringe?

We plan to buy walkie-talkies.

Sum up your show in three words for us:

Fast mundane glamour.
