Video: Comic Relief - The Haunted Gun, Starring Beasts

Comic Relief has released the second in its series of original online sketches in the run-up to Red Nose Day. 

The Haunted Gun was written by and features comedy trio Beasts who are James McNicholas, Owen Roberts and Ciarán Dowd. In this darkly funny sketch the lads are messing about in an eery junk shop when Ciarán is confronted by a very strange man who insists that the gun he's just found is cursed, because - shock horror - everyone who has ever been shot by it has mysteriously died. The sketch was directed by Tom Parry, founding member of sketch troupe Pappy’s and co-creator of BBC Three sitcom Badults.

Further sketches set to be released as part of the Comic Relief Originals series include new comedy from Massive Dad, London Hughes, Liam Williams, Anna Morris and many, many more.

And if you like what you see here Beasts are at the Soho Theatre with their latest show from March 9 - 11. Tickets here. Read a review of their Edinburgh run here.
