Introducing what will undoubtedly be one of the hottest new acts at this year's Fringe, sketch duo Lazy Susan are two of the most funny, talented women to emerge in years. They will be performing their first ever hour of fun, character-driven sketch comedy - with smatterings of the dark and surreal but with plenty of heart - at the Pleasance Courtyard this August.
