Monkey Barrel Comedy

Admin

In a nightmarish version of Hi-de-Hi!, this double act delivers an hour of brilliantly written comedy that packs in the laughs from start to finish. Get there early or buy a ticket in advance, as this lunchtime show is proving as popular as it did last year.


Yorkshire's finest meat-themed double act is back, in an all-new sketch comedy nightmare. This time the perennial bad lads of Icklewick are at Ginster's Paradise, a holiday camp unlike any other. Surreal shenanigans, unsettling illustrations and a staycation adventure you'll never forget! 'Very smart writing' (Best Shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018, Guardian). 'A serious double act contender for a long time to come' (Scotsman). 'Barmy comedy fantasia' **** (TheWeeReview.co.uk). 'Old-fashioned silliness with modern comedy sensibilities' ****½ (ShortCom.co.uk).

The Edinburgh Fringe - my experience

Chris Cantrill is a comedian and writer from the north west. He's one half of critically acclaimed sketch duo, The Delightful Sausage along with comedy partner Amy Gledhill. As part of a short series of blog posts about performing at this year's Edinburgh Fringe we asked Chris to sum up the experience and pass on any advice for anyone who is thinking of giving it a try.

Edinburgh rules

Many performers set themselves Edinburgh rules, like not drinking for the month. We asked this year's Fringers what theirs are.

The most impressive thing you have ever been underneath

For this year's Edinburgh Fringe, we've teamed up with Richard Herring (you probably know him best as Journalist from The Battersea Ripper) to offer a peculiar twist on the traditional festival questionnaire - with all the queries taken from his book of Emergency Questions, as originally used on his Leicester Square Theatre Podcast, RHLSTP. Starting with this one: What is the most impressive thing you have ever been underneath?
