Ask The Nincompoops

by Andy Stanton & Carrie Quinlan

Tremendously clever grown-ups Andy Stanton (bearded author of the Mr Gum books) and Carrie Quinlan (unbearded actress, comedian and and all-round weirdo) answer questions set to them by flocks of shamefully ignorant children. ‘Who invented cheese?’; ‘What are trees for?’; ‘What’s the meaning of life?’; ‘Why don’t dogs poo in the toilet?’ No inquiry is too difficult or too smelly for the Nincompoops.

So listen in as Andy and Carrie generously share their ‘wisdumb’ and ‘nollidge’ with you in a feast of nonsense, hilarity and truly outrageous lies. Your children will laugh their tiny trousers off! 


‘hoMe sKOOLin’ wiTh the niNComPOOps’

Armed only with a couple of school dictionaries and whatever nonsense happens to come out of our mouths each morning, we’re putting up short videos to give you all a few extra giggles right now. 

There’s a brand-new episode of ‘hoMe sKOOLin’ wiTh the niNComPOOps’ on YouTube every weekday and you can find all the previous ones at:

Take care, everyone!

Love from

Carrie and Andy

(aka the Nincompoops)
