With a strapline sure to cause acid reflux for Dudley and Two Permits at the Town Hall and for the MP for the Whitgift Foundation, while prompting knowing smirks from Captain Sensible and the rest of London, How The World Wags is the name of the Edinburgh-bound sketch show from four regular comedy performers from the borough.

The line-up is Sarah Block, Michael Hall (who claims credits including Stalin the Musical, 2003), Owen Moore and David Sanders, offering “a plethora of sketches pointed at modern
social mores, with plenty of cultural pastiches – each with their own particular twist”.

Before they head north for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival next month, How The World Wags is going to be doing two nights in Croydon, at the Scream Lounge, 20 South End, on July 22 and 23.

The show lasts an hour, tickets cost £5 and can be booked by emailing  They say that “there is some mature content”, so don’t bring under-14s.
