Idiots of Ants are Andrew Spiers, Elliott Tiney, Benjamin Wilson and James Wrighton. They have written and performed their unique blend of fast paced sketch comedy all over the world since 2007.
In that short time they have performed four sell-out Edinburgh festival shows and completed a successful UK tour which culminated in a West End run. The Ant’s have been featured on BBC1, BBC 2, E4 and Radio 4, with their skits also making an appearance on The Today Show in the US and ChannelPlus in France. It is no surprise that the Independent newspaper declared them to be one of the top five sketch groups in the UK.
In 2009 they were one of the only sketch groups to perform at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. They performed alongside comedy legends such as Bill Cosby, Jimmy Carr, Ross Noble and John Cleese (who also appeared in one of their sketches).
