Description

Why do geese fly south for the winter? Why does it always rain on a bank holiday? What's really inside an Oreo? You suggest the question, and watch as the myth of its origin comes to life! From the roaring thunder of Mount Olympus to the frozen tundra of Scandinavia, it's Horrible Histories meets Whose Line is it Anyway? meets Clash of the Titans! If you love improv, this is not a show to myth!

Recognised one performer (or 2?) from Any Suggestions, Doctor? But this is a three handed improv only and they work hard & smart for your laughter. Completely recommend this just for the great working chemistry between the performers. Really generous - & teasing - improv teamwork. Go see.

Hilarious and madcap. The funniest and by far the most ingenious comedy at the fringe. Four incredibly talented performers create legends and myths from audience suggestions with a fluid wit that made my face ache with laughter. DO NOT MISS IT!
