Idiots of Ants Press Launch

“Not sick, dark or fashionably twisted, just very, very funny”
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

“…they were funny, but at the same time relevant and grounded.  They were enthusiastically received across a wide diversity of age groups”
Robin Pinchbeck, Chief Executive, Petrofac

Idiots of Ants are ’Four immaculately presented men dressed in black and white (who) deliver intelligently witty and wonderfully timed observational comedy sketches’.

Formed in 2006 by four friends who all met at Birmingham University and Drama School in London the group have had a meteoric rise on the comedy circuit.

Their original brand of fast-paced and well-observed sketches with a slightly off-kilter look at the world around them has seen them sell out two consecutive Edinburgh Festivals, perform at various charity events with stars such as Rowan Atkinson and Jimmy Carr and be taken out to the Montreal ‘Just For Laughs’ Comedy Festival to perform alongside John Cleese.

Aside from live work the ‘Ants’ have also performed on Radio 4, had numerous appearances on the BBC (including Comic Relief 2009) and had their own pilot for E4 as part of the Funny Cut Season.  Their online following is constantly growing with their numerous clips generating millions of hits.  Their ‘Wii Breakfast’ has had over 1 million views and ‘Facebook in real life’ exceeding well over 2 million hits making it the most viewed BBC comedy clip of all time.

The ‘Idiots of Ants’ have also performed at many corporate events to groups as large as 1000 people for clients such as BMW, Chanel and Petrofac and have long-standing relationships with many leading Events Communications companies including WorldEvents and Blue Pebble Events. Their slick image, inoffensive humour and boundless energy make them the perfect addition to any corporate event.  They will fit into any corporate agenda: session ‘break’ sketches, a warm-up session before a series of presentations or a performance for end-of-session/evening entertainment.  We are happy to discuss a custom performance to suit your needs.

“Petrofac asked Idiots of Ants to put together some linked comedy sketches to illustrate serious business messages at a business event.  They first worked closely with a young team from our side to understand us and our needs and then created and delivered great material on stage: they were funny, but at the same time relevant and grounded.  They were enthusiastically received across a wide diversity of age groups. IoA were funny, relevant and effective: we wouldn’t hesitate to commission their help again. They made our staff laugh while drawing attention to some serious points: a big hit – recommended”
