The Space Race

After two sell-out Edinburgh runs, Chortle Award nominees The Beta Males present the secret history of the British space programme and why you’ve never heard of it. The Soviets and America are racing to put the first man on The Moon, but Professor Brian Brilliance vows Blighty will get there first if it kills him. Or them. Or everyone else. A sketch show blasting off in T-minus… 1969.
