Full press release
The undisputed cult hit show of 2014, Funz and Gamez returns to the Fringe this year with the anticipated sequel Funz and Gamez Tooz. Phil Ellis is back with a brand new show and new family fun and a much better girlfriend. Joined by all the gang: Bonzo the Dog (Will Duggan), Jim the Elf (Jim Meehan, Gein's Family Giftshop) but not Uncle Mick because he's dead. His brother, Uncle Rick (Mick Ferry) fills that void. See how the story continues, meet new characters including new songs, new gamez and new funz.
Winning the Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Panel Prize, FAGZ is no ordinary children's show. Beating all conventional rules about what a children's show should include, Funz and Gamez does everything it shouldn't. It's for children and aimed more importantly for adults, to be thrilled and offended about how Phil and the gang speak to and treat their precious little ones. Expect chaotic madness and gloriously silly amounts of gasping fun.
