Winners: People's Choice Award Vault Festival 2017

As heard on BBC Radio 1. A ball-busting compere takes four improvisers to their physical and mental extremes in a series of games designed to test their wits and bodies. You get to decide who's worthy and win the ultimate prize: your respect.

It's a high-octane mix of impossible challenges and incredible feats of daring. The teams contort their bodies, fight invisible giants and create jokes on the spot all climaxing with a terrifying audience vote. No two shows are the same! Expect big laughs, big cheers and good times.
