[WATCH] The Knights of Satire sharpen the holiday season

As they rev up for their final, sold-out weekend, we pay a visit to the Salesians Theatre in Sliema to chat to the team behind The Comedy Knights... where we both struggle to keep a straight face for the camera

The Comedy Knights is rapidly becoming one of the mainstays of the holiday season, as the satirical variety show hits its stride with 'Comedy Knights: Three Times Funnier', taking the assembled crew of actors and comedians back to their familiar stomping grounds at the Salesians Theatre, Sliema. 

Though we struggled to keep a straight face - thanks to the interviewees' colleagues insistence on trolling off-camera - we spoke to veteran 'Knights' Jo Caruana and Colin Fitz, as well as relative newcomer Thomas Camilleri, about how the increasingly popular show has developed since its inception three years ago. 

However, though we were told that nothing was off-limits for Comedy Knights writer-performers Steve Hili and Chris Dingli, it appears as though the word 'inject' is a pretty taboo word for the team... check out our video to find out what we mean. 

The Comedy Knights: Three Times Funnier will be showing at the Salesians Theatre, Sliema tonight and tomorrow at 20:00.
