Heroes Of Fringe

Admin

Paul Vickers' alter-ego is still brilliantly bizarre, but this year's show is actually pretty darn coherent, with some corking songs. The former indie-rocker and his cohorts create some genuinely interesting music and effects to soundtrack Twonkey's emotional journey.


2016 Malcolm Hardee award winner for Comic Originality - dare you board the Twonkeyverse? A fancy new adventure featuring a tiny Al Capone, a mysterious package and a sexual dance that leads us off a cliff. We travel to the belly button of Europe to unlock a safety deposit box. Why is Mr Trombone so sad and what's it like to work as a gigolo? 'A crazy, wonderful performer' **** (Kate Copstick, Scotsman). 'The plan is written on a teapot' **** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'An hour of utter chaos sit back and enjoy the ride' **** (ShortCom.co.uk).

Can you tell real shows from ones we've made up?

With well over 3,000 shows vying for attention at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, a wacky, funny or downright bizarre name is one way to stand out from the crowd. We've picked 10 of our favourites - but can you tell the real ones from the fakes we've made up?

This is much more to Mr Twonkey than surreal comedy

I met up with Malcolm Hardee Comedy Award winner Paul Vickers aka Mr Twonkey over breakfast to talk about his show Twonkey's Night Train To Liechtenstein but, initially, we got sidetracked by the three gigs he recently played at the Prague Fringe - in the Museum of Alchemists.

John Finnemore, John Fleming's Blog, 7th June 2018

Mr Twonkey interview

The Fringe wouldn't be the Fringe without Mr Twonkey, so all praise to the Comedy Gods because he's coming back to Edinburgh this August.
