Men with Coconuts: Fringe Preview

20:00, 07 - 08 Jun

Men with Coconuts, Scotland's leading improv troupe, return to the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe with an entirely new show: a hilarious montage of scenes, songs and silliness.

Expect emotional balladry, lyrical wizardry and musical husbandry. Expect jaw-dropping feats of imaginative theatrical storytelling, and for many of these stories to contain a character called Nigel. Expect to do that weird laugh you do when you aren't expecting to laugh, but realise that it's okay because everyone else is laughing weirdly and involuntarily too. Expect Coconuts.*

Men with Coconuts come straight from a critically-acclaimed, sold-out, award-winning tour of Australia and New Zealand. Still unplanned, still unscripted, still unbelievable!

*disclaimer: we often don’t bring actual Coconuts to our gigs, so don't rely on us to meet this expectation. You are welcome to bring your own.

 

★★★★★

‘Lightning-quick. You’ll see a delivery that is both measured and quirky, perfectly complemented by brilliant voices and corresponding musical sentience. So damn talented, so damn hilarious.’

The Adelaidian 

 

★★★★ ½

‘Throughout, the performers looked to be enjoying themselves as much as the audience. This was a hilarious show. Highly recommended!’

The Clothesline

 

★★★★

‘Cheek-aching improvisation… The beauty… is every one pans out to be completely different, so there’s no shame in returning again and again.’

The Advertiser

 

★★★★

‘This wickedly amusing show is imaginative, super-smart, and has the audience in stitches for the entire duration. Downright hilarious.’
