McAllister (Live at The Apollo, Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats), 'The Bench' tells the tale of an
epic conflict over a public bench!
Sandy (a pompous, posh and cantankerous man in his post-prime years) is furious to discover
someone has scattered his flower arrangement over his “memorial bench”.
blames Joe (a young office worker on his break relaxing on the said bench) so beginning
the tirade of well-observed rants, uncompromising solutions, unreasonable demands that
makes this shared journey of self-discovery an amusing ride.
See how the two generations fight it
out in a battle that will change the two of them forever, and where they may finally answer the
eternal question of – when is a bench not a bench?
