An absolute delight of a show. Four terrific improvisers keep the ball in the air and never let it drop for a second. A terrific variety of improv types throughout the show, keeping the audience stimulated and amused. Special joy for us the reviewers as they played out our first date with scary accuracy! Go see this terrific troupe – and be prepared to be exploited if you’re in the front row! (Written by the creative Stephen, edited by the administrative Mark)

I saw this show on Mon 8 Aug. There is a lot of good improv each year at the Fringe but on the evidence of what I saw this week, this show is right up there amongst the best. Sharp, confident and fluent, the show never lagged and there was no dead air. Each night, as they said, will be different, but on the basis of this performance I would happily go back this year. The venue is just about right - big enough to secure a sense of audience but small enough for the audience to see the non-verbals and hear the asides close up. In terms of structure, Debate, True-false buzzer and relay games worked very well (but purely as a practical point, maybe put debate at the end as it can be wrapped up more swiftly against the clock?. And strange to have no women in the troupe at this show?). On the night the players all brought different strengths to the floor, but a great ensemble performance. 5/5 stars.
