Summary
All eight episodes of the sketch-based comedy show, written by and starring Dan Gaster, Will Ing and Ben Silburn

Tasty, piquant and distinctly different, The Curried Goat Show is a comedic happening brought to you by the warped minds of writer/performers Dan Gaster (The Thick of It) Will Ing (Insert Name Here) and Ben Silburn (Week Ending).

Join them as they explore astrology, irrational fears, shopping – and jam; find out the results of the ‘I Love Fatima Whitbread’ competition; and discover everything you never knew about flying. Let the Great Mystico foretell your future; debate evolution with Professors Dawkins, Hawkins and Gawkins; listen in as Rachel Smith’s ordinary day takes a surreal turn and marvel at the blindingly obvious phenomena in World of the Known. You’ll also meet those bastions of the British Empire the Blah Men; two antagonistic American sportscasters who find pronunciation a little tricky and a group of adrenaline junkies in search of the ultimate headrush – as well as an inept hostage negotiator; a confused prosecutor; and the world’s worst undercover agent, Harry Carter of MI5.

There’s also a plethora of themed evenings, such as Pig Night (featuring lying quiz show Porky Pies and pig racing from Chepstow); Vegetable Night (including the latest in veg-based technology and sitcom The Merry Chives of Windsor) and Tree Night (complete with brand new soap opera Stringy Bark Glade). Plus, the team pay homage to various cinematic classics with their unique dramatic productions, among them The Concrete Jungle Book, Oliver With a Twist, Joseph and His Tremendous Psychedelic Poncho and Tuesday the 17th, Part Five.

With special guests including Gary Olsen, Nerys Hughes, Susie Blake, James Fleet, Paula Wilcox, Rodney Bewes, Polly James and Imelda Staunton, and eclectic tunes from The Big Buzzard Boogie Band, this sketch bonanza is sure to whet your appetite.
