If like me, you were a child of the nineties, you will have fond memories of shows such as Art Attack and Saved By The Bell. After a school week, I would rush home, turn on the telly, and 'thank Nick its Friday' as I tuned in to see my favourite high school characters get into trouble with Mr. Balding. Unlike most children's shows set at school, Saved by the Bell was not a soap full of miserable teenagers, but a comedy full of laughs.
Then at the weekend, I'd spend my morning watching Neil Buchanan create fantastically quirky crafts out of recycled material. Half an hour later, the glue, toilet rolls, and scissor would be out, and I'd be making a dinosaur piggy bank.
If your childhood followed a similar pattern, then we can relate to each other. We can also relate to Lead Pencil, a trio of comedians brought up on these two shows, and inspired by them. On the 3rd May, 18th June, and 24th July, they will be at Leicester Square Theatre In Full HB to present a sketch show that is literally sketched. Tickets are £10, and come complete with retro nineties fashion. Look forward to a colourful nostalgic crew of characters they 'made earlier'.
