After two sell-out runs at Edinburgh Festival, regular performances on Live At The Electric (BBC Three) and their own BBC Radio 4 series, DAN ANTOPOLSKI (triple Perrier Award nominee), TOM CRAINE (used to date NAT) and NAT LUURTSEMA (used to date TOM) are back with a third hour of blisteringly fast, silly sketches in their brand new show, Jiggle It.
Rising stars in British sketch comedy, it has been a meteoric year for JIGSAW. Ranked as one ofGQ’s Top 100 Best Things in The World 2012, the smart, silly threesome’s Fringe Show Gettin’ Jiggy was ranked as one of the 15 best reviewed at the festival after their sell-out 2012 run. The trio have filmed a series of comedy shorts for BBC Online, won the Celtx Seeds Short Film competition for PVT Craine, have starred in sketch series Sketchorama (BBC Radio 4) and performed as regulars on the first series of BBC Three’s prime-time show Live At The Electric.
Individually, DAN ANTOPOLSKI, TOM CRAINE and NAT LUURTSEMA are all established and highly acclaimed stand-up comics and writers. DAN is a triple Perrier nominee and BBC New Comedy Award winner as seen on Hyperdrive (BBC2), TOM is an award winning writer for shows such as The Last Leg (Channel 4) and Mock The Week (BBC Two) while NAT is a Chortle Best Newcomer nominee, her debut book Cuckoo In The Nest was published by Hodder and Stoughton.
