Release the Clowns Episode 26

00:0000:00

Get ready for a historical comedy sketch bonanza! It's all our favourite historical Release The Clowns sketches in one place. That's right, we've opened up our archives in the hope that we may educate, illuminate, elucidate and inform. From Medieval emojis to off-key Hieroglyphics, from the humble Tommy to the valiant Suffragette, from the darkest hours to the dazzling genius of Leonardo and Freud,  we capture the grand sweep of human development, and filter it through the prism of peak UK sketch silliness.

00:0000:00

In this week's comedy sketch extravaganza we get our street slang dictionary out for a great new holiday destination, we get hassled by fat-shaming babies, Daleks relax, there's a ruined climax in a fringe theatre, two straight men try to be funny and we road test the new Diabolical Disintegrating Death Ray. All good family fun!

This show has everything - Budgie wrangling, home operations, a way of solving all your relationship problems through extreme violence, the whole of world history with Lucy Worsley, crap war reporting, the entire universe with Brian Cox and, of course, the World Cup. Yes, it's coming home!*

*Release The Clowns cannot guarantee that this is the football World Cup, or that it will actually come home.

As Release The Clowns hits the 10,000 downloads per episode mark, we head to Liars Anonymous via the King's Fringe Theatre costume department. On the way we meet the unfunniest men in comedy, Edwardian ladies with a serious case of moustache envy and a bunch of *rseholes. Then we've just got time for tea - but woe betide you if you don't offer to make it for your colleagues!

00:0000:00

If you love sequins and gimp masks, easily baffled news reporters, romantic dates with hunky Russians and a quarter pound of what you fancy from the cornershop, then this week's titanic episode of Release The Clowns should be right up your alley... although we can't guarantee the appearance of Leonardo di Caprio, Kate Winslet or the French Canadian musical stylings of whatsherface. Sorry.

It's an artistic extravaganza this week! We've got Yorkshire miners busting moves, achitects working in crayon, sensual pottery classes, and a magazine helping you create your own desecration of nature.

We're on a quest this week with wizards, feminists armed with mashed potatoes and actors with trousers. Can we discover how to defuse a timebomb with a mercury switch while thinking up clever puns about the weather? Why would we even want to try that? Find out here!
