In a world where one man can be one character, Alexander Richmond dares to be twelve of them. Utilising your new-fangled smart devices, you choose from a roster of unique characters ranging from a sour-faced musical parodist to the current record-holder of the longest continuous Macarena. By being in control of who features, you dictate the overall narrative of the show. With every night featuring a different cast, no performance will ever be quite the same!

Bonkers in the absolutely best way - will make you laugh, squirm, and embrace the hilarious awkwardness. Just don’t pick Spitty.

This show was pure chaos but I haven’t belly laughed this hard in a long time.

P.s. my husband says 10/10 back massage

Loved this show. Weird and wonderful. Very clever. Very funny.

On track to be one of the most my most memorable Fringe experiences.

Don’t get me wrong: this takes place in a repurposed karaoke room, the costumes come out of plastic bags, and Alexander spends a lot of time talking about his own awkwardness.

But goddamn, it was CHARMING. It was just so silly, there were laughs, there was rapport. There are characters that didn’t make it into this cut of the show that I’m legitimately disappointed I won’t get to know.

This is exactly the type of thing I come to Fringe to see. I’d recommend it to anyone who can stand a little awkwardness.

My partner and I went to see Alexander’s show, my first fringe show, and had an absolute blast. His characters were off kilter in the best ways, made everyone a part of the show, and had everyone laughing throughout. Even afterwards he was incredibly helpful at recommending other shows and events, so not just funny but a great guy too. Highly recommend his show, definitely a must see while you’re in Edinburgh!

Brilliantly absurd and quirky, clever and genuinely funny. Deserves a bigger venue tho cramming into such a small space makes for a wonderfully intimate performance.

Laughed my ass off. Watch out for Spitty!!!

No better way to spent an hour in the afternoon
