USA, 1985: Rookie Police Cop Jimmy Johnson joined the force to protect and serve... But now Jimmy's in deep, partnered up with a renegade Police Cop and leaned on by a racist Chief. With guns loaded and safety catches off, Jimmy's on a freewheeling adventure from the mean streets of America to Mexico, where destiny awaits in the form of grizzled ex-Police Cop Juanita Gonzalez. Multi award-winning Police Cops are back and bigger than ever. Featuring an expanded ensemble and original songs, their unique physical comedy mayhem is supercharged for their most ambitious show yet.

Really enjoyed the latest show from Police Cops. A greatest hits of all their work mashed together with great and stupid songs - stupid in the best possible sense. Expect big laughs and terrible improv, somehow it all works the more that goes wrong. In our show a dead body had to refix their hearing aid as our favourite Police Cops ever inspected the body. Perfection of clowning by newcomer to the company Gabriella Leon.

To see Police Cops expand with the incredible Gabriella Leon and Mitzli Rose Neville was a treat. These two bring so much flavour and impeccable comedy to the usual trio. This truly feels like Police Cops upping the game in musical theatre comedy. Impossible without the comedic chops and great voices of the new members of the company.

It's still the Police Cops you know and love, now with even more to enjoy. Great casting!

Fantastic show, even if you're not massively into sillier and coarser stuff - rips along at a pace, incredible energy and physicality and inventive dancing, staging and imaginative twists. Intergalactic kudos to the cast and crew!

Denise 36 days ago

This show is as fantastic as everyone is telling you. Just go and see it.

Nicole 37 days ago

Despite being a musical this is genuinely funnier than most comedians you’ll see. This show is undoubtedly going to be huge after Fringe and I highly recommend seeing it. Complete genius use of props and script.

Natalia Leon 37 days ago

What an amazing show. Thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. Great witty jokes, very funny and comical. Highly recommend watching this if you're wanting an entertaining evening. Special mention to the female cast Gabriella and Miztli, you ladies we're amazing.

James Doherty 38 days ago

Truly feels like seeing a Broadway/West End show! Amazing talent, hilarious and catchy songs. For less than 20? Unbelievable! See it!

Liza Grashion 38 days ago

So funny, the jokes were non stop. Loved the use of physical comedy for some of the visual effects on stage. Amazed by the well timed choreography for the fight scenes and acrobatics. Just loved it!

Leah Sullivan 39 days ago

Second time seeing Police Cops and I can't believe it but it was even better!

The two new cast members really add to it. Each individual is so funny and had me cracking up with laughter.

I'd recommend this show to anyone.

One of the best shows I think I've ever seen. So intelligent, so innovative & so slick. Amazing transfer between characters, amazing choreography and original. Not seen anything like it before. Mind-blowing in many ways. Loved it.

This is the third time I have seen Police Cops at the fringe and they just get better and better. How do they manage to pack so many gags into one show? Dunno, just know they are an awesome team. The additional 2 cast members fitted in seamlessly and superbly.

Sensational in every way. It's rare that a spoof musical manages to be genuinely hilarious but the writing is so well-crafted and witty and the cast are an absolute joy. The venue was packed and the whole crowd went wild for this show. As well as laughing pretty much all the time, I found myself just gazing in admiration at the sheer, mad wonder of it all. I loved the 2019 show but this is even better. One of the best comedy shows of this or any other Fringe.

Really funny! I had a smile on my face throughout the whole show and for me that’s a sign of a good musical. There were a lot of good jokes and laughs. Thanks to the crew for a great time.

Jasper Cresdee-Hyde 44 days ago

As brilliant as everybody says. They successfully take an incredibly niche brand of deadpan, stupid humour and transform it into a high-energy, mass-appeal extravaganza. Action-packed and hilarious, go see Police Cops!

Marielle B 45 days ago

Brilliant & very funny.

Avi 46 days ago

As impressive as it is ambitious. This show would be so amazingly fun even if this incredibly talented cast DIDN’T ‘go there’ with so many stage antics that just add to the “how are they doing this” hilarity. Top fringe show, go see it yesterday.

Alasdair 48 days ago

If you’ve seen these guys before, rest assured they have not lost their touch and this may be their best yet. If you haven’t, you are missing out. One of the best times I’ve ever had at the theatre

Police Cops was brilliant. We went yesterday and loved it. Absolutely hilarious. The whole cast was fantastic . Had us in stitches.

Nic Goddard 51 days ago

So, so good. We absolutely loved it. We've been quoting random bits of the show at each other all evening and are still laughing.

I decided to go see this show when a pre booked show had been cancelled, decided to take a chance on something a little bit different. I am so glad I went, the small cast of 5 were excellent, a mixture of comedy, music acrobatics and a bit of slapstick with Panto like special effects (the Table).

I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Tom B 51 days ago

This show is a must see, absolutely fantastic from start to finish! Immensely talented group, brilliantly written and hilarious, wanted to go straight back in and watch it again!

I thought several audience members may hyperventilate, because Police Cops The Musical is one hilarious riot. It’s so slickly delivered, you might miss just how much the cast are putting in to make this one of the funniest shows at the Fringe.
