pool noodles

Kenny Shallows has always dreamt of being a poolside lifeguard, but when he gets a place at the lifeguarding school of his dreams, he finds he is a small fish in a big pond. That is, until he hears about the lifeguarding elixir! 

In this hour of manic, narrative sketch comedy, Kenny must battle breaststroking bullies, ghost-filled golf courses and a whole lot of water in order to become the greatest lifeguard the world has ever seen.


It’s crunch time for Kenny Shallows; sink or swim; dunk or get dunked; splish in or splash out.


Combining clever humour, original music and frenetic physicality, this narrative sketch show has previously been described as “a triumph of creativity, energy, and ingenuity” (★★★★½, Varsity) and “a glimpse into the future of British comedy” (★★★★★, TCS).
