Chuck Salmon: Pool Noodles

Kenny Shallows has always dreamt of being a poolside lifeguard, but when he gets a place at the lifeguarding school of his dreams, he finds he is a small fish in a big pond. That is, until he hears about the lifeguarding elixir!

In this hour of manic, narrative sketch comedy, Kenny must battle backstroking bullies, ghost-filled golf courses and a whole lot of water in order to become the greatest lifeguard the world has ever seen.

It’s crunch time for Kenny Shallows; sink or swim; dunk or get dunked; splish in or splash out.

Join tasty troupe Chuck Salmon for a narrative sketch show that has previously been described as “a triumph of creativity, energy, and ingenuity” (★★★★½, Varsity) and “a glimpse into the future of British comedy” (★★★★★, TCS).
