Sketch show / Cabaret that will be performed at Just the Tonic at The Tron at 11am for 1 hour, on the following days in August 2017.
This show operates under the Pay What You Want (PWYW) model. To guarantee entry, buy a ticket in advance (£6 from EdFringe.com). Tickets holders will be seated first. Then, if there is still space, the free queue will be let in. At the end, anyone who didn't pay will be asked to leave a donation in a bucket.
Grab a morning coffee and start your (Fringe) day with a life-changing symposium (terms and conditions apply). Franks and Skinner are super trendy (they're not trendy) and ridiculously healthy (really?) and they want to be zen, mindful, in the moment - which moment? This mome... ooh I need more loo roll. Shut up brain. They need some help. Welcome to MindfulMess! There'll be inspirational singing monks, tap dancing unicorns and a plethora of life coaches including guest speakers Fat and Slimmer. 'The Fred and Ginger of sketch comedy' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Completely exhilarating' ***** (TVBomb.co.uk).

Female comedy duo, Franks and Skinner (not Frank Skinner!) are back in Edinburgh. This year they're at Just The Tonic, Downstairs at The Tron at 11am. They will be mixing a unique blend of therapy, comedy and madness to bring you: Franks and Skinner Present: MindfulMess. Complete with complimentary tea and biscuits.
This show will endeavour to ask many questions. It will explore the unexplorable, energise the unenergised, massage the unmassaged, and confuse the unconfused.....Welcome to the new craze that is MindfulMess!
There'll be inspirational jazz singing monks, tap dancing unicorns, extreme interpretations of MindfulMess, Flamenco-Disco-Yoga (aka FLADOGA), Bootcamp 'Insanity' Instructors, Meditation classes, and back by popular demand the hugely successful Etonian Vampires, who will be sharing all of Franks and Skinner's sordid secrets. There are songs, dances and too many costume changes.
Franks and Skinner's debut show Myself and Myself was performed back in 2015. From there they received awesome reviews, interest from a BBC producer, and have since been asked to write material for radio.
