Description

Calling all comedy revolutionists! Tired of watching performers use primitive "scripts" to perform "emotional" and "engaging" comedy? Never fear – The Shambles are here! This group of devil-may-care comedians from York are hellbent on giving their audience the time of their lives – all without planning a single thing! From manic monologues to phantasmal plays, every night is a brand-new experience for performer and audience alike! Previous shows have been described as ridiculous, frantic and surreal! Don’t believe me? You’ll just have to come and see for yourself if The Shambles live up to such stylish, commendable adjectives!

An incredibly fun, creative and interactive performance from the Shambles. They're not afraid to back down from any prompts, kept the energy high and the audience engaged. A genuine credit to comedy.
