An uncomfortable stare; a shriek heard in the background of a dream; the noise a sloth makes when receiving divorce papers. From the unsettling mind-meld of Nicholls and Brown, Grubby Little Mitts will drive a truck through your life, delighting and bewildering in equal measure. Featuring Rosie Nicholls (NewsRevue) and Sullivan Brown (No Rolls Barred), Grubby Little Mitts is rooted in the recognisable yet traverses into strange realities where normal rules of engagement do not apply. Sketch comedy with teeth... and eyeballs. Directed by Jon Gracey (The Beta Males; Werewolf: Live).

Really enjoyed watching this. At first I didn’t know what to expect but in the hour of watching, it is a very funny off the wall comedy with comedy , comedy horror and some just very silly and funny sketches. 5 star show ***** . Everyone who can, should go and see it.

Came to the show in support of Jon, Rosie and Sullly with friends and my wife. Now you have 3 more fans and honestly, one of the most refreshing and insane double act. The room laughed from start to finish, the use of the props to bring the scenes and story to life was exceptional. Everyone, please see this show, you will not be disappointed.

Absurd, frenetic, silly, clever, but, above all, side-splittingly hilarious. Grubby Little Mitts does not let up from its opening salvo and is funny throughout. The charm of its two stars is inescapable, too. They take seemingly mundane situations such as sensitive plumbing, discussing movies on a first date or simply ordering a coffee and add a sense of the preposterous in way that is so very endearing.

Absolutely worth the price of admission. Eye highly recommend it.

I had never been to this type of show before but went to support because I enjoy Sully, Rosie and Jon on another platform. I absolutely loved the show though and laughed so much. Going to try and attend another show at the end of the month as well. Met everyone after the show and they were all so lovely and got photos with everyone and stayed to chat and thank everyone. The use of props is so good and the transition between sketches is flawless. Genuinely couldn’t recommend this show highly enough. If you’re going to the Fringe and unsure what to see definitely make sure you go see Grubby Little Mitts!

Absolutely stellar hour of laughter that made the room rock! My first time seeing this duo and I cannot wait to see them again, whether with my eyes or with coffee for my mouth. Highly recommended show for this year’s Fringe, return to the festival with these two!

I haven't had the privilege of seeing this at the Fringe this year, but I did see two of the warm-up shows beforehand. This was a fast-paced, wacky and strange sketch show which left me in hysterics by shows end. If you've ever wondered what the minds of the wonderful Sully and Rosie look like, it's probably something like this. I'll never be able to visit a coffee shop the same way again. Also, EYEBALLS!

On The Mic (4/5 stars) 1 day ago

If you fancy a slick, fast moving, truthful show, featuring absurdism, slapstick, clowning, Vaudeville, puns, comedy sound effects, dance, a hint of satire, improv, and some brilliant crazy props, go see Grubby Little Mitts. I really enjoyed it. It deserves to grow further and live way beyond Edinburgh.
