Full press release
Late Night Gimp Fight are back at the Edinburgh Fringe, and this year they mean business. Strap in for what is set to be the biggest, most ambitious sketch comedy show the Fringe has ever seen. Expect the usual heady mix of technical prowess, drum-tight writing & slick choreography in an all-out Gimp-tacular. They're in their largest venue yet, and thus are planning what can only be described as an arena show - you won't see a more awe-inspiring sketch show anywhere else this year. Incorporating projection & television screens the Gimps are developing a new kind of interactive multimedia sketch comedy, wherein the technical wizardry is integral to the comedy as much as it is framing it. Expect more of their famed musical set pieces, as well as typically unique takes on American footballer dads, contemporary dance and that scene from When Harry Met Sally...
The 2012 incarnation of Late Night Gimp Fight is David Moon, Lee Griffiths, Matt Ralph and Paul Biggin. Lee, Matt and Paul trained at East 15 Acting School and David studied at Drama Studio London. They are directed by Steve Marmion, Soho Theatre's artistic director and are an associate company of Soho Theatre. Having performed with his fellow Gimps for the past three years, this summer Richard Campbell has to bow out due to his commitment to his pupillage for just this year's festival.
