About In Cahoots

Paul G Raymond and Luke Manning are IN CAHOOTS, a sketch comedy double act.

See their quintuple five-star debut show returning from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013 to London and Brighton this December!

In Cahoots zip through razor sharp sketches and inventive characters with ease. Join these versatile comedy performers for a surreal and sublime comedy sketch show.


Paul and Luke have worked with each other for almost five years, which is almost too long. They perform improvised comedy with acclaimed troupe Shoot From The Hip!. Paul and Luke have also collaborated on film, with Luke taking roles in two of Paul's short films, Stormin' Norman and Ewan Daddy Chiles, the latter of which Luke plays the eponymous lead.

Paul and Luke have been personally invited into the prestigious improv company The Spontaneity Shop's select Level 3 course, and have trained in improvisation under some of the best improvisers in the world, including David Shore, Niall Ashdown, Luisa Omielan, Tom Salinsky, and Alex Maclaren.


Paul and Luke have numerous acting credits. Paul can be seen being manhandled in a 118 118 advert, and Luke maintains eye contact with at least one of the members of McFly in their music video for Love Is Easy. Luke has a 2:1 degree in Drama and Theatre Studies from Royal Holloway, University of London, which he constantly talks about.

All the time.
