Comedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in sketch comedy?
Tom Burgess: A couple of years. I got involved with the Sheffield University Comedy Revue in 2010, then joined the sketch troupe Fuddlepuck in 2011, before it fell apart in 2012 after an unresolvable cupboard-related dispute.
Sam Nicoresti: Not long enough. I only really started when I came to Uni, and even then I holed myself up in radio for two years rather than face an audience. Radio is great, you don’t need to impress a void of silence, you just let it wash over you, like having a bath in some space. That doesn’t happen too much anymore since I started actually facing audiences. They make noises, most of the time it’s laughter or encouragement. It’s down right not on.
