Originally formed as a four-man sketch team called Pappy's Fun Club who first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2006, then were nominated for both best newcomer and the if.comedy award the following year.

Founding member Bendan Dodds left in 2009, leaving Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby and Tom Parry to perform under the truncated name.

They were named best sketch, variety or character act in the 2008 Chortle awards and have been nominated for Best Show by the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2007 and 2012.
