It's a classic case of once seen, never forgotten and often folks ask why they've never played Edinburgh Fringe before. Well at last that's been put right... Combining superb musicianship with side-splitting comic genius, these guys are truly unique entertainers. Elements of circus clowning, vaudeville slapstick and sheer inspired silliness are spliced with superb acoustic music as these maniac minstrels deliver everything from Python-esque absurdism to pyrotechnics and live interactive film. Expect the hilariously unexpected. 'They made me laugh until I cried' (Tim O'Brien). 'Impossible not to love them' (Shetland Times). 'Incredible' (Orkney Folk Festival).
