This free-to-download series is written by, and stars, Trev & Simon who for a decade dominated Saturday morning TV with their mad and unpredictable world of comedy, sketches and silly games on BBC1’s Going Live! and Live & Kicking. They Didn’t Do Duvets, or Perms or Discs, but they Did Swing Their Pants!
Here they are now, two idiots claiming to be Tilbury’s No 1 synth-pop duo Pink Custard; stuck in Space, orbiting the Planet Mirth.
And with only Sophie, the manager of a NASA Space Centre gift shop, played by Dr Who’s Sophie Aldred (she’s Ace!)… and a computer robot called L.E.M.O.N. onboard ship with them.
Here’s a taster:
