Crizards, the 'classic double act' (Guardian), are back with a wonky war epic directed by Edinburgh Comedy Award winner, Jordan Brookes. The musical duo's gentle bangers provide the soundtrack to their bulletproof patter as they stumble into a world of false memories and tall tales from the battlefield. They say you are your own worst enemy... well, not during wartime. **** (Guardian). 'A comedy triumph' ***** ( 'Essential Fringe viewing' ***** ( 'Hilarious' **** (Skinny). **** (Entertainment Focus). **** ( **** (List). As seen on BBC One, BBC Three and Dave.

Brilliant songwriting and storytelling! I saw this show at the very beginning of the festival and I still can't stop humming some of the tunes. One of funniest and cleverest musical comedies at the Fringe.

Really good show. Delivered by two funny and talented men. The room was far too hot but the show was great.

I had a great time at Crizards! The boys have written a great show with a compelling narrative running through it. They manage to cover what could be a somewhat heavy topic of going to war whilst maintaining a great level of hilarity and silliness by employing prop and character comedy - it really is an impressive skill! I was constantly laughing and there was never a dull moment. I would highly recommend Crizards to anyone and I will wear my sub 300 badge with pride!

Worth hot-footing it to.

It’s wildly irreverent, but there is a thread of concern about sacrifice, remembrance and respect

This is a very solid hour of comedy from some Fringe favourites, and I’d recommend grabbing a ticket for a laugh or twenty.

Crizards: This Means War uses comedy to talk about difficult subjects, and leaves us real-life considerations.
