Bendy House is an improv duo from Dogface Improv.
Bendy House - an improv duo. No script, no plan, a new and unique show every single performance. Taking just one word as inspiration from the audience at the beginning of the show, Chris Read and Danny O'Hara will create scenes, characters and sketches in front of your eyes. From the kitchen of a Romford semi, to the ministry of weather control on the planet Zarg - where will they take you today? Two people, two chairs, no script, infinite possibilities.
As well as the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, Bendy House have performed at the Nursery Theatre in London and various locations in East Anglia. Chris and Danny run Dogface Improv - an improv comedy company based in Norwich and have trained with the Maydays in Brighton and IO in Chicago.
They say: "We're so happy to be returning to the Fringe, we absolutely love the insanity of the festival. Performing 14 shows in 14 days is an incredibly exciting thing to do. We've been developing a new show structure behind closed doors and can't wait to perform it to a public audience"
"When we went in I was worried that they would peak with giving out the Custard Creams. Although the biscuits were very good the show was much better! Excellently executed by two talented artists. Some lovely laugh out loud moments and insightful comedy. Highly recommended if you want to spend a funny and innovative hour." - Brian Birtles, Edinburgh Fringe audience member, 2017
"I was gripped by the emotional drama of Shirley and her black forest gateau." - Helen Rye, multi award winning author
