In a world gone mad, it’s increasingly difficult to say anything without someone getting stroppy. Are we losing our sense of humour in this progressively censored world?

Chris Radburn and Sean Woodland find the whole thing unbearably funny, and with their trademark tongue-in-cheek impropriety, have reunited to tell you why in this brand-new show overflowing with completely unfiltered funnies.

Armed with nothing but touchy topics and unbridled bravery, they set out to explore the great unknown; wilderness rife with the dangers of trigger warnings and sensitivities. What will they do if they encounter a grizzly area of offence? They’ll bring down the behemoth, one upROARiously funny, over-simplified argument at a time. Much like mansplaining, but, ya know, between men. Let’s call it “Explaining for Dummies.”

With a few pokes and prods, the miffing material will undergo a live edit, only to be released into the wild as an infinitely funnier, cuddlier beast. Coz a joke broken down to its bear essentials is a joke improved, right?

Strap in for an hour of non-stop hilarity while they explore exactly what it takes to get folks offside. You’ll laugh. You’ll cringe. But most importantly, you’ll go home happy safe unchallenged. Or offended.
