Smash hit act The Ginge, The Geordie and The Geek present a 'best of' compilation featuring their best sketches from 2009 and 2010. It's a show filled to the brim with quirky characters, silliness, surrealism and 80s anthems as they continue to put the fun back into comedy.

Having cultivated a massive following, the group's new show includes a Big Bad Wolf facing up to his victims, a man who struggles to handle his mime addiction and a lion who plucks up the courage to tell his dad he's a vegetarian.

The Ginge, The Geordie and The Geek have cemented their reputation as the most exciting sketch act on the circuit since their entire sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2010, appearing on Dick & Dom's Funny Business, supporting Johnny Vegas and being invited to perform alongside James Corden, Jimmy Carr, Miranda Hart and Michael McIntyre at the charity gig Childish Things in front of a 2,000 audience. On the group, Vegas said they are "the funniest reminder that Oxbridge has no monopoly on genius mucking about... all hail the new chiefs!"

They sold out their show at the Magners Glasgow Comedy Festival, and were invited to perform at E4's Udderbelly on the Southbank and at the Latitude Festival in the lead up to the Fringe. They are currently developing material for TV, and were named Best Sketch Act by Spank!, and nominated for Edinburgh Spotlight's Best Comedy Act 2010 award. Their show at the Fringe 2011 is directed and co-written by John Hoggarth, former artistic director of the National Youth Theatre, whose credits include Perrier nominated show Dutch Elm Conservatoire and So You Think You're Funny? winner Tom Allen.

All three members of the group studied acting at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, graduating in 2004. The trio are established comedy and theatre actors in their own right, and individual credits include Little Britain, Simon Pegg's Run Fat Boy Run, Skins and Rab C Nesbitt.

This summer both Paul and Kevin will appear in brand new Channel 4 comedy Sirens, whilst Graeme is to appear in Edinburgh-based drama Case Histories with Jason Isaacs. Paul also scooped two Fringe First Awards at the Fringe in 2003 and 2009 for his comedy play Love, Sex and Cider and Crush, and was recently awarded a place on the BBC Writersroom10 initiative.

The trio are also performing a new show this year. All New Show
