Racing Minds are our absolute favourite long form improv group and we were hugely grateful they played their short run this Edfringe while we were up there. Loved seeing their show again and please get something sorted for Fringe 2024 if you can chaps!
Highly recommend both this show and absolutely anything and everything that each of them may also be doing at the Fringe this year. Brilliant, intelligent performers and writers.

This show was amazing. So clever, witty and hilariously acted. My ten year old loved it so much we've been twice...and yes, the shows are different... Completely Improvised from audience suggestions. I highly recommend this and will definitely be going next year.

These guys are the best! This would be our 4th time seeing them and they are as good every time! So clever and funny bringing a new crazy story to life each time expertly bouncing off each other! Highly recommend!!

This is the best improv show we have seen as a family, very likeable cast, genuinely funny and lots of facts about Austrailian animals :)
We went as a family and it was suitable for children/teens without being silly and patronising.

Slick and professional improv group. They gave out Starburst sweets at the beginning, which is worth a bonus point.

The show we watched was funny and my 10-year old son enjoyed it, though it could have done with fewer in-jokes about Brighton I think. I wouldn't rule out watching again another time to see how different everything was on a second go.
