Description

Expect yum-yucked yummy mummies, celebrity clown chefs, pasta grannies and the hottest pasta rap bangers ever to mash your ears. 'Michael Kunze is a comedy master' (TheReviewsHub.com).

Never heard so many food puns in such a short span of time - 10/10 show. The songs were hilarious and so clever, catch it if you can!

What can I tell you - it’s the funniest, pasta-puns filled show you’ll see in Edinburgh. If you love hip-hop, pasta or just belly-hurting laughs, come and see it sooner than later. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

Such a fun way to spend an evening! A very funny and enjoyable show. I want to go again just to hear all the puns I may have missed the first time..!

I loved this show so much I went back to see it twice. The second viewing was even richer given how fast the jokes fly by and the wildly talented lead spits delightfully punny pasta rhymes. A true must see with a genuine heartwarming narrative arc in between all the belly laughs.

This was the show that started my fringe 22 and what a start it was. The show was a fabulous mix of story telling, improvisation, music and word play all delivered with aplomb at breakneck speed.
We laughed, cheered, sang along and were swept along. Thanks for a great show.
