Description

Former stars of the multi award-winning Durham Revue, 'comedy geniuses' (Jeremy Vine), and future Fringe legends Andrew and Ambika present a new sketch show, complete with séance. From dying onstage to straight-up dying, this is how two friends fill their time whilst waiting for the dead to arrive. From winners of the Derek Award for Best Sketch Show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and 2017, Children of the Quorn™ is an hour of intelligent, original, high-energy comedy that will raise the roof and raise the dead. 'Gonna be huge unless they get real jobs' (Stevie Martin).

Really great show. Meta, absurdist, slightly dark sketches. My favourite show from my two days at the fringe.

Really clever. The sketches work really well as standalone pieces but the link between them when revealed is really clever. A really enjoyable, slick and entertaining show. We liked it so much we paid twice! Highly recommended.

We died laughing, then our departed souls stayed to watch the rest of the show. It was truly fantastic show; clever, witty, with a quirky concept. The pair worked really well together and it was performed with perfect timing.

Children of the Quorn is the kind of sketch show that puts the audience in a state of laughter before anything has even happened. From the first interaction between Ambika and Andrew on stage, you could just tell that this was a show worth sticking around for.

It is a good title, isn’t it? It heralds super-slick double-act sketch comedy with razor-sharp timing. There’s an over-arching dramatic narrative and a conclusion which reveals the intricacy of the show’s structure through a series of call-backs. So far, so clever (and it really is). But, for all that, it’s...

Smartly written, superbly performed and very entertaining, this surreal, crazy and hilarious show delighted the crowd. I expect they probably will be filling out that massive venue once word gets out about the show.

Have you ever successfully summoned a ghost through a ouija board seance? No? Well neither have your hosts, Andrew and Ambika, so why not watch some sketch comedy while you wait to see if anything happens! Join your seance-leaders in their production of Children of the Quorn™ playing at La Belle Angele, and get ready to witness some frighteningly clever sketch-comedy.

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 103 days ago

Sketch duo Andrew Shires and Ambika Mod arrive on stage in a rather confusing manner, cleaning up debris and muttering to themselves. It’s not until after a little bit of flashback work that we understand the format of the show. We are led to believe that we’ve arrived for a...
