The Dreadfuls are recording a spoof of Guy Fawkes. The show will be recorded on Monday 12th October at 7.15pm at Broadcasting House. The show will be broadcast on the 5th November.
Radio 4’s often heavyweight Afternoon Play is being given over to sketch group the Penny Dreadfuls for a spoof history of Guy Fawkes.

From Chortle:

"The trio of David Reed, Humphrey Ker and Thom Tuck will be joined by other actors for the 45-minute show, which will go out on November 5.

The Edinburgh Fringe stars have previously written and performed two series of the Victorian-themed Brothers Faversham for Radio 7.

Meanwhile, stand-up Andy Zaltzman has also landed a four-part Radio 4 series, in which he promises a comic history of the past ten years.

Other comics will join him in Andy Zaltzman’s History Of The Third Millennium, which promises a mix of ‘stand-up, sketches, facts and blatant lies’ to examine the major events and trends of the last decade.

Zaltzman has co-written and hosted the Radio 4 shows Political Animal and The Department and The Times’s satirical podcast The Bugle, all with Daily Show correspondent John Oliver.

Free tickets for the recordings of both Zaltman’s and the Penny Dreadfuls’ shows have been released – see our free tickets page for details."

KEVIN ELDON!!!
Kevin Eldon is in the play!!!!
I really enjoyed tonight, I laughed a lot and thought a lot of the play was very well done, some of it very moving actually.
If you're in on Bonfire Night daytime then put it on or find listen again.

They did a final gig a good few years back now, and then all went off on separate things, I think. I hope there's a reunion sometime. Preferably with the original four so they can do 'The Invisible Man' because that makes me cry laughing!

Humphrey has been in America. He was developing a sitcom for abc. Not sure about David. thom had been doing his own stuff. I saw his adaption of Harold pinter's A Slight Ache, which I enjoyed. I also saw his free stand up show in edinburgh.

It would be great if they did something together again.

What was Thom's stand-up like? Any good? I saw him at Storytellers Club one time, but that was ages ago.
