I really loved this show! Very entertaining and I loved all the guests and the way they use audience participation. It was great fun. Looking forward to seeing them again next year!

Really entertaining, fun, silly and creative show that was exactly what I wanted it to be. Perfect for light-hearted fringe fun. Ping pong skills need work though...

Such a good show! An excellent concept that kept us on our toes. This was a highlight of Fringe for us.

This is one the best shows I have seen at the Fringe. Inspired, I laughed and laughed. These guys are seriously original and funny. Please come back to the Fringe next year!

Mr. Thing is a hilarious fake TV show that has you smiling throughout with its relentless enthusiasm, sarcastic puppet, hilarious musical interludes and genius puns.

The perfect Fringe gem, it deserves to be huge. I'm so glad I took a gamble on it.

Of all the shows to see at the Fringe, Mr Thing is just the perfect end of the evening, with all the audience interaction and surprise hijinks, it's like being at a party. I'd recommend it to anyone. Gutted I didn't know about it last year.

Overall, Mr Thing is a loveable laugh engine that provides great value for money, a warm fuzzy feeling and the desire to return for more each night. If you see one show at the Fringe, make it this one.

Opening with their signature theme song, it’s really hard not to have a good time from the offset! Their chipper personalities are contagious, and their show still brings back all the nostalgia of wholesome TV gameshows.

A riot of colour, sound and sass in a talk-show format...

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 125 days ago

Just as US late-night shows are meant to offer an easy wind-down after a long day, the hugely entertaining Mr Thing is the perfect nocturnal nightcap for the ordeal of Edinburgh pavement pounding and queuing in the rain ...
