Crash Course

In 2007, Tom Crawshaw and Yaz Al-Shaater returned as the hapless Mike and Nick from the award-winning Platformation in Part Zero of the runaway Buxton Fringe hit The Transport Trilogy. Crash Course follows Mike and Nick on a driving lesson which ends up bringing the whole of Big City to a standstill. An anarchic, runaway comedy which blends script and audience suggestions to form a series of snowballing sketches, bound towards a calamitous catastrophe.

Rebellious technology, switched clothes and helicopter chases mixed with improvised scenes - which saw the duo driving everything from ice-cream vans to unicycles - to produce one (or even two) news shows every night at the Buxton Fringe.
