They have been back for ages. Some say they never went away.

What annoys me is that they seem to think they are satirical.

I see they have a live show on in London currently.

Dead Ringers advice on doing Michael Gove- “start with Ronnie Corbett and then like chlorine poured over a chicken, watch all the charm disappear until you are left with the Goblinesque”

Satire for the #FBPE market.

Oh yes. Something about #fbpe which really boils my piss, and I'm totally remain.

I doubt I'll ever see an effective demolition anywhere near the mainstream though, because of who we're talking about.

I wonder how David Cronenberg feels about this.

Satire for the #FBPE market.

I read a tour publicity interview with Jan Ravens and Lewis MacLeod yesterday in which they mentioned the referendum show they did in 2016.
Quote
Ravens flew back from holiday in Corfu to record it. English people at the airport went up to her, asking what Dead Ringers would be doing. The audience, MacLeod says, “was rabid for something”.


The idea of people buttonholing Ravens to ask about what Dead Ringers would be doing seems ludicrously far-fetched to me, but perhaps I'm out of touch with everything.
