Based on their hugely popular live shows and following on from successful shows at the Edinburgh and Glasgow Comedy festivals, How Do I Get Up There? mixes surprising characters and familiar scenarios in a weird and wonderful world.
This fresh new mix of scenarios includes an ingenious style of police interrogation while a team-building exercise led by two over-excitable instructors quickly gets extremely physical.
A bouncer takes his strict door policy very seriously and there's the introduction of a bold, new, hero, Billy McAllistair, who appears whenever help is needed, accompanied by his trusty band of pals.
A long-suffering office dweller is driven to breaking point by sinister noises from 'the outside' and a couple out for a quiet drink are interrupted by Gabriel, the finest horse impersonator ever to gallop in from the internet.
Elsewhere, a lollipop man has a stressful first day on the job; three hot-headed strangers debate the rules and etiquette of pushing the button at a pedestrian crossing; and the comedy sketch show ponders which alcoholic drink is the sexiest of all time.
