FRESH from Montreal, four-piece sketch group Idiots of Ants are preparing to go on their first major tour. Join them for a special warm-up show at West Ruislip next week.
The Idiots - Benjamin Wilson, James Wrighton, Elliott Tiney and Andrew Spiers - have attracted a large following with their unique style of fast-paced comedy.
Their debut show at Edinburgh Festival was a sell-out and their most recent success was a Facebook sketch, Facebloke in Real Life.
It enjoyed more than a million YouTube views and has been hailed as 'stiletto sharp' by the Evening Standard.
