The Cowards are a four-man sketch troupe who shun comedy caricature in favour of understated, naturalistic performance. Through their characterisations of small people in small situations, the team create a self-contained world that allows the laughs to emerge from their characters.

Cowards are a British four-man comedy act, composed of Tim Key, Stefan Golaszewski, Tom Basden and Lloyd Woolf. The group has created eponymous radio and TV series of their sketch comedy.

The group first appeared on radio with a BBC Radio 1 show called The Milk Run which incorporated some Cowards material. As a result of working on The Milk Run, they were asked to do a one-off special, which led to a Cowards series being commissioned. Their first radio series was broadcast on BBC Radio 4, beginning on 17 April 2007, and a second series was broadcast in autumn 2008. Each series contained five episodes.
