JET PRODUCTIONS (England, Northern Ireland, Australia)
On Feb 22nd, 1952, 50 strangers gathered in the vaults of BBC Stoke to hear a ground-breaking new comedy act, 'Umami'. Unfortunately, they forgot to record the performance so it has only been whispered about in comedy circles ever since... until now.

‘The sketches... have a variety of inspirations and tip a hidden hat to some classic British troupes over the years. Monty Python, the Carry On franchise, even Absolutely Fabulous. From the fantastical to the downright dirty, the three performers draw up a plethora of topics and exhibit creativity not only in the initial conception but in the overall arc that links disparate sets of events together.’ (Daniel Perks, Culture By Night)
