You can’t choose your family, but you can create 30 minutes of comedy about them. That’s exactly what Joseph Emslie (Amused Moose finalist 2017) and Chris Cooke (BBC Radio 4 Extra's Newsjack) have done! Joseph and Chris had very different upbringings. In this split bill they’re going to reveal how their families moulded them into the shapes they are today. Find out whose family shines brighter than the sun and whose flickers like a windswept match. TV, radio – between them they've owned a few! PBH's Free Fringe – free – non-ticketed.
