Cardinal Burns may be a name you recognise from their time on the live circuit performing as singing Turkish mini cab drivers, among a host of other slightly bizarre and odd characters. ‘My tax disc has expired!!!’ etc etc..
Seb Cardinal and Dustin Demri Burns are two individuals that I hope we will all see a lot more of this year. Their brand spanking new sketch series on E4 will go some way to doing that and from the very few sneaky looks at the new series it seems that they haven’t compromised on the mixture and utter madness of their Fat Tongue and Comedy Shuffle skits which is great news.
Some of the duo’s characters and relationship redefining is quite dark but delivered with enough confidence and pin point timing to see us all through with a side split. But it is this very point that will get them hoards of new followers and office workers happily quoting along. The darkness only appears as their sketches mirror aspects of our lives with haunting accuracy. Look forward to an amazing Nuns On The Run rip off scene featuring the pair in the showers with lots of steamy yet angry women. Banksy talks us through his hidden life in Hadley Wood where he balances his ‘street pictures’ with wife Jill & two kids. Here’s to more dark moments with awkward Black Mirror silences and mini cab drivers, salsa dancers and the perfect office flirt! Set record for E4 22.30 on May 8th.
