Fresh from receiving a 4* review from The Guardian Newspaper for the duo’s Edinburgh Fringe performances, viewers will be able to catch The Rubberbandits live from Ed Fringe on BBC 3 tonight at 2.10am. In an Edinburgh Fringe and BBC first, a mammoth night of live comedy will be screened on BBC Red Button this Friday August 17, from 9pm until the small hours of Saturday morning with The Rubberbandits featuring at 2.10am this Saturday morning.
The show will feature over 40 Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Festival acts and will be hosted by an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scot, as Chris Ramsey, Andrew Maxwell and Susan Calman share MC duties.
Also at the very same time, you can also catch the bandits in action on their debut on Channel 4 this Friday night when the three comedy shorts (Blaps) made by the duo for Channel 4 will be screened. The blaps were a big step forward for the Limerick boys and a full TV pilot was commissioned which wrapped last month and will air this Autumn. The Rubberbandits Comedy Blaps air on Channel 4 this Saturday morning from 2am.
