First they make an effort to be nice to kids in the audience and are messing about making you laugh as you walk in. Then you get an hour of good natured fun with loads of laughs and songs you know. Last year their show was also great. The youtube clip on this page doesnt show their faces as well as a live show, 5stars.

Oh my goodness, my face is numb from laughter, such joy and fun. The energy in the performance is phenomenal and the clever use of props and audience members makes this a must see show!
I wanna quit life and join these ladies in Kagool land, they're awesome! *****

Excellent! Caught the Kagools last year doing 10 minutes in a showcase and had to find the full show this year - could they stretch the hilarity to 60 minutes? Absolutely - so many laughs, nice audience participation (don't worry!) and just great fun.

We saw the kagools a few years ago at the Edinburgh festival and we all loved them . So when we were returning this year to the festival - the whole family agreed we would be returning to see the kagools - and they didnt fail to disappoint - good old fashioned raw humour suitable for the whole family . What these girls have done is simple but really works . Thank you so much for a great evening full of laughter . Keep up the good work . I would highly recommend this show .

Bloody brilliant. I saw them at Late n Live and it was so hysterical I booked the full show. I get some people might not like to go on stage but I’m not sure if they would really force someone who didn’t want to, as another reviewer has alleged. It just wouldn’t make sense for the act. The faces were amazing - the facial expressions. Very very clever and very funny. I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t love this

as previous revie says, don't go if you're worried about getting picked out and dragged on stage...we found it a bit insane and a bit bonkers, but made us laugh a lot too

Went to see this show this evening, after they cancelled last night's performance. You definitely need to be comfortable with audience participation. People are really taken up on stage even if they don't really want to. We all felt very uncomfortable as it felt like the comedians were making fun of the audience members. It made us cringe so much and feel so uncomfortable that we left. I've been to many Fringe .festivals and I'm hard pushed to remember walking out on one before. It says suitable for 5+ but I don't think it's for kids really. My 12 year old was terrified he was going to have to go on stage and be made fun of. To be fair, it does say audience participation, but that's most fringe shows. The difference with this one was the humour somehow seemed to be from making fun of people and it had a not nice edge to it. Maybe the show improved after we left, but the bit we saw was just not worth spending time and money on. Disappointing.

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 93 days ago

From the off in this madcap show the audience are fully involved. The Kagools eye-up unsuspecting victims as they come in, pouncing on people whether they are sitting at the front or the back. No seat is safe and yet no face is unsmiling. The Kagools (Nicky Wilkinson and Claire Ford)...

It’s a great idea to create an interactive non-verbal sketch show which works equally well for children and adults. ...
