The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the greatest arts festival in the world. Plenty for all to see! So why Sheeps? "Excellently silly ... great deal of promise" (Scotsman). "Smart gags ... winning delivery ... very intriguing prospect" (Chortle).

Full press release
Hotly tipped new sketch group Sheeps bring their first full show to the Edinburgh Fringe, following a series of regular sell-out London shows at the Etcetera Theatre and Pleasance Islington.
Sheeps: A Sketch Show brings together a selection of sketches, skits, characters and songs including a medley of showtunes from Sheeps' original musical adaptation of Oliver Twist, shrewdly observed and abstract sketches and at least five minutes of material that's been cut from the show.
Sheeps are Liam Williams (Runner-up - So You Think You're Funny? and Amused Moose 2010, "Great voice, smart gags" - Chortle), Daran Johnson (Old Vic 24 hour plays writer 2010, Harry Porter Playwriting Prizewinner 2009) and Alastair Roberts (Cambridge Footlights President 2008-2009, "terrific" - The Scotsman).
