The improv comedy troupe perform regularly at a range of events including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and have also appeared BBC One, BBC Three, ITV1, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 4. The group has performed alongside the likes of Michael McIntyre, Al Murray, and Harry Hill, an in 2014 they were nominated for a Chortle Award.
In the improvised performance, The Noise Next Door ask judges David Walliams and Amanda Holden, as well as the live audience, to shout out suggestions for a new business. The group then perform a comedy song based on the suggestions, about a business run by Britain’s Got Talent presenters Ant and Dec, where air hostesses make wellington boots. The song includes the memorable improvised lyric: ‘If David [Walliams] was making them, they’d be called Wallington Boots’.
The performance is available to watch on Britain’s Got Talent‘s YouTube channel, here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA1Xsid_B98
