Comedy Group Aim To Break Record For Shortest Panto

Comedy sketch group, The Comedy Knights, will aim to perform the World’s Shortest Panto this Christmas, as part of their topical comedy sketch show at the Salesian Theatre later this month.

The current world record stands at five minutes, a time that the Maltese comedians hope to smash. “We have indentified a list of essential panto elements, and will include them all in our extremely abridged panto,” says director Wesley Ellul. “It’s a challenge, but should be great fun to watch.” The World’s Shortest Panto, written by Chris Dingli, will form part of an evening of topical sketch comedy performed by Jo Caruana, Marc Cabourdin, Chris Dingli, Colin Fitz, Steve Hili and Pia Zammit.

Ellul commented, “The show is all original material, written and performed by Malta’s funniest performers. No politician is left unscathed or scandal unmentioned. It’s definitely not for the kids.” Aimed at a purely adult audience, the Comedy Knights’ Christmas Comedy Cavalcade runs at the Salesian Theatre from Boxing Day until 30 December and all tickets include free parking.

Tickets start from €10 and are available from
