The Bad Clowns are in masterful control of the tone and play with it at their whim. They expertly blur the lines between scripted and improvisation, the standard of which I can’t recall seeing before.
If you want to see a show that has been carefully filled with as many moments of absolute hilarity and absurd character driven story, and then seem to layer more additionally on top, see this. Do yourself a favour.

Saw a taster of this show at "Clash of the Tight Tens".
Loved the little bit we saw, as it was hilarious and would have gone to see the whole show but we were going home that day. Shame.

Absolutely hilarious really one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Even when twice in one week! A must see show.

The show was spectacular. I was so glad it was recommended to me. Bad Clowns know what the hell they are doing, and it shows. The show was hilarious, well acted, and well produced. And the cast and crew were so fun to hang with after the show! Check out this show. You will not be disappointed.

Honestly one of the funniest shows I saw at fringe. I went to see this last week and still think it is my favourite thing. I was laughing the whole way through. The audience participation was fun as well ( being called on stage is probably one of the highlights of my fringe) Definitely pre-book your tickets. It is so worth it!!!!!

Third year we have seen the Clowns at the Fringe and they just keep getting better and better. Lots of gags and a great story line. Venue is great and really suits the material - we felt a 'real chill' as we entered. The set was fab. One of the best shows we've seen this year. Keep up the good work!

Another amazing show from the trio, having seen them last year this was the one show we really wanted to see. Surprised these guys are not packed out each night. Keep it up guys and put me down for next year as well.

A really funny show with a great premise and improv and a surprisingly effective set and effects.

The three heading the show are hilarious and it's clear to see the love and effort put in behind the scenes too. Definitely one to watch especially considering you can just turn up and 'pay what you think it's worth' or however it's phrased. I had prepaid for my ticket and then chose to donate some more to the show when leaving and it still felt like a steal.

Great show with a very funny trio of guys at the helm. Kept the laughs coming and worked well with the audience to make things interesting throughout the hour. Definitely a show to check out for a good time and big shout to John. You absolutely cracked me and I just wanted to give you a hug even things went south at the end (no spoilers!)

An excellent hour of good solid comedy presented by a trio of likeable guys who come across as really enjoying their Edinburgh fringe experience. Fun and frolics with a splattering of audience participation that keeps things moving throughout their show. I was reminded of a young Rick Mayall up on the stage, and that has to be a good thing... Enjoy... father (loud shirt) and sensible teenage son tour 2019.

If you’re ever feeling stressed or exhausted by the craziness of the Edinburgh Fringe, just remember this: the Lunar God Nallagog loves you, and he wants you to join him on his glorious utopia on the Moon. While we’re still on Earth though, he just requires a few small things,...
