Mostly aimed at kids but lots for adults, too. Superb improv and comedy skills from all four of the group. One to look out for next year.

Joe Metcalfe 83 days ago

Hilarious for both kids and adults. Great improvisation from the team of four.
Daughter (aged 10) went twice as she loved it so much. Best show of the festival for her.

Adults around me where all laughing too.

Good use of props.

Will be returning next year for this.

If there is one show you can’t afford to miss it’s this one.
The Noise Next Door are one of the best improv groups around and this show is one of the funniest things you will see during your time at The Fringe.
Fantastic fun for all the family (8+)

I haven't laughed so much since the last time I saw The Noise Next Door's afternoon show! This is genuinely one of the funniest, silliest and best shows of the festival.

Don't be put off by the target audience being young - my husband and I, both firmly in our 30s, have wet ourselves twice now. We have a kid but we didn't even bring her.

Make sure you take your inhaler!

I've noticed that the term "the best show of the fringe" is tossed around as profusely as flyers on the Royal Mile, but in my last 4 years of visiting the fringe I think The Noise Next Door's Really Really Good Afternoon Show is a genuine contender for this title.

This may be an afternoon family fun show but you don't need young kids to enjoy it. This 23 year old and her mum (who let's just say is old enough for a bus pass) first happened upon this delight last year and this years show ("through time") is even better than the last. It's an hour of ridiculous comedy, riotous laughs and -mostly- suitably rated humour with a few jokes which -hopefully- sail over the younger audience members' heads, all this leaves the audience rolling with laughter kids and adults alike.

This is an improv show with enough structure to have a cohesive story, but enough unplanned silliness effortlessly delivered that you hardly know where the line is... Dinosaurs, robots, songs, and a few wild cards thanks to the audience (insert joke about brownie trousers time

Another year and another brilliant show. Great for all the family but definitely not restricted to those with children.
Very clever entertainment and sooooo much fun!!

Pam Marr 93 days ago

We all absolutely loved this show - very, very funny from beginning to end. Suitable for all and thoroughly entertaining.

Lucy Malt 96 days ago

What a fantastic show - it was hilarious and fast paced and it did not disappoint. Those guys are seriously talented. Thank you for a laugh out loud hour of fun topped of with the comedy dinosaur...!

Michaela Jones 97 days ago

I can't rate this highly enough! With three little ones, a teenager and my parents it's always difficult to find something for everyone without all of us splitting up. But this show was just that!! The performers were so quick and fun, a little cheeky at times but with so much energy! The kids loved it, and they were talking about it with my mum and dad for ages afterwards. Would highly recommend!

Anthony Christensen 97 days ago

FINALLY... a show that everyone in the family could enjoy. My very savvy 10 year old turned to me at the end and gasped: “AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!” Then, “can we see this again?”
Just get tickets booked before it’s too late!!!

Avril Ritchie 98 days ago

Didn't rate this at all. Not funny or entertaining. Was glad to leave.

Kirsty Kerr 98 days ago

Loved this show today, brilliant performers, high energy and loads of fun! Good for all ages, can’t wait to see the adult show too. Good job guys!

Rachel Century 100 days ago

I was actually crying with laughter at some of the sketches in this show. The four guys are absolutely incredible and I'm in awe of how they come up with so much good material, so spontaneously. When I saw the flyer I was skeptical of a show that could appeal to all ages 6-106 but I needn't have been, the whole audience was in stitches. I want to see them again!

Laura Livingstone 101 days ago

Laugh out loud funny even if you don't have kids to take. Brilliant fun.

Mairi Bell 101 days ago

LOTS OF FUN! Went with our daughters 8 and 10 and we all had a great time. Zany, fast-paced and loads of fun. I was particularly impressed at the performers' restraint, keeping the improv content suitable for a family audience....not sure I could have done it!!!

J Clark 103 days ago

5⭐ Brilliant and loved by kids and adults alike. Marked as 8+ and given this is an improv show younger kids might not understand it. Having said that our 5 year old was mesmerised by the action and music on stage. Laughed nearly the whole hour through. Well worth going!

Hazel Barnes 103 days ago

Perfect for families. Hilarious and entertaining for kids and adults alike. We LOVED it !!
