Why the change in format? Well, I've found in the last two shows, the shorter sketches and some of the monologues didn't fit into the overall pattern of the show very well. Whilst all the material worked, it didn't always want to stand next to each other. Also, when edited in post production, the shows were drifting to 45 minutes naturally, the hour format being just a little too long and some padding was creeping in. I'd rather record a tight show than edit one down - you get more and better laughs. It also means the second half can be for material that wouldn't fit anywhere, encouraging more randomness and new voices to get involved.
And if you happen to be a new voice - then get in touch - I'm on twitter @RobertCrighton
