If you could be in a sketch with any two living comedians, who would they be and what would the sketch be about?

Catch Steen Raskopoulos: Stay at the Underbelly at 8pm, 2 – 26 August (not 13)

The electrifying new show from the gifted character comedian and improviser.

A flawless hour of comedy’ ***** (Herald). As seen on Top Coppers (BBC Three), Whose Line is it Anyway?
