Philberto is the mad comic genius from English comedian Milo McCabe, pretending to be Portugal’s No 1 reality TV star. He has a vibrant energy that makes twenty minutes disappear in the blink of an eye.

Carl Hutchinson has been a finalist in prestigious competitions such as So You Think Your Funny? and ITV’s FHM Comedy Hero.
