Video: Clip From “Mad” New E4 Show Cardinal Burns

The first clips from Cardinal Burns, a new comedy TV sketch show coming to E4, have emerged and feature some pretty awkward Office-esque scenes….and a man with a very squeaky voice.

Landing on screens next Tuesday (8th May), the show features comedy duo Seb Cardinal and Dustin Demri-Burns who have already experienced sell-out success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and London’s Soho Theatre.

The show, representing the pair’s first foray into the world of television, will introduce audiences to series staples Office flirt and New Guy, Young Dream – a parody of The Hills, someone had to – and plenty of “quick fire moments of madnessâ€?.

Speaking of its new baby, E4 said: “Sketches range from silly and cartoonish to smart, contemporary concepts, to character pieces and quick fire moments of madness, all filmed with an ambitiously filmic and rich frame of reference that make this series stand out from the crowd.â€?

Fiona McDermott, Channel 4’s comedy editor, said: “Quite simply, Cardinal Burns are one of the funniest sketch duos around. Delightfully clever, imaginative and silly, theirs is a brand of comedy that is perfect for E4 and we can’t wait to start working with them.
