The Armstrong and Miller show

Following on from the BAFTA -nominee success of the Armstrong and Miller Show, Alexander Armstrong  and Ben Miller are touring a brand new live show around the UK.

Armstrong and Miller will be performing a multitude of characters from the TV sketch show. Fans will recognise; WWII chav pilots; Brabbins and Fyffe, alter-egos of Flanders and Swann; Jilted Jim, dumped at the altar but still on his honeymoon; Terry Devlin, the royal correspondent who really KNOWS the royals; Dennis Lincoln-Park, the accident-prone culture buff; the Frank Dad and many more.

In their own words: “We are cock-a-hoop to be stepping out on tour in Autumn 2010. Expect all your favourite Armstrong and Miller characters and sketches in a market-fresh brand spanking new show.”

It is unclear how they are going to arrange the assorted costume changes of varying complexity, but one thing that is for sure; whatever happens, it will be funny.
