Go and watch this (adults only) 91 days ago

I have been following this amazing comedy group for about 3 years and must have seen then around 25 times in various shows.
Last night was my first (but certainly not last) comedy lock-in.
As usual the ‘boys’ did not disappoint.
Being a keen follower of live comedy I have seen plenty of stand-up and comedy shows over the years but these guys are easily THE BEST.
Go and watch them, you will not be disappointed

Whenever we see these guys we laugh so much it hurts! We always pre-book the show in advance before arriving and follow them on Facebook for if they ever came somewhere local (unfortunately hasn’t happened yet but live in hope!). This is the show to see no matter what your tastes! Check out the kid friendly show too - again still hilarious just clean!

High energy improvisation from the revitalised group and special guests.

After 11 sell out Fringes, there is a knowing bond of sadism between the boys and their audience: our job is to push them as far as we can with the most outlandish, fiendish, filthy or insane suggestions and their job is to pretend that we’re not playing straight into their hands. As if all that didn’t make for a packed enough hour, they somehow pepper everything with topical jokes, callbacks to previous gags and just relentlessly trying to corpse and one-up each other. And last night’s guests, Alasdair Becket King and Pippa Evans gave as good as they got too.

Obviously, the physical humour is what you remember the most, but I never cease to be amazed at the puns and word play. I mean, seriously, how do you get an audience suggestion and 10 seconds later you’re improvising it into a song including rhyming and puns whilst miming, acting and dancing?

You’ve probably seen some great stuff on the Fringe, but have you cried laughing more than 5 times in any show?

We laughed so hard it hurt - these boys are the improv kings and we see them every year at least once. Grab a drink and relax knowing that you are in for a great time. Fab guests last night too (August 15th)

I couldn't breathe :D we'd bought the tickets after a friend recommended it and almost didn't go after all the rain, but I'm so glad we did. we've seen improv before, but this was so different and felt so so so quick and the guests are great. i've already booked tickets to see it again.

An absolute must see show of the fringe!
If you want to enjoy some of the fastest improv comedy around, these are the guys that will blow you away.
I see them every year and they always leave me with the best type of face ache.

The Wee Review (5/5 stars) 103 days ago

The Noise Next Door take improv into overdrive. While other acts may be satisfied with clever quipping and awkward pauses between each sentence, this four-strong group never relent in their pace or inspiration. Their ad libbing is masterful, concocting the most erratic ideas into riotously funny sketches that vary from...
