Presents Adventureman 7: The Return of Adventureman

Mat Ewins’s multimedia-based show – loosely spoofing the Indiana Jones franchise - was an hour of pure, unashamed silliness. Every one of his lovingly crafted videos and pieces of impressive computer programming were packed full of mischievous jokes, with Ewins often providing the set up to a gag only to reveal the punchline on screen. Ewins’s impulse for impishness went beyond his live show, though – whenever a review was published the comic would send the publication a picture of a totally different comic to accompany it. At the time of writing, his Guardian review still features a picture of comic Tom Toal.
