Had great fun at this show! Not necessarily the most polished performance but this added to its charm for me. Great idea to have characters from the bad old days of the 80's and a version of musical chairs that was blooming hilarious. All three performers were excellent with high energy, hilarious facial expressions and enthusiastic if bizarre dance moves! Go see it!

Our first time at the Fringe festival and these guys were easily the best show we saw. We were literally in pain with laughter the whole way through. The best!! Thanks Sleeping Trees.

These guys are great! The writing in their show is incredibly clever and each of the guys are amazing performers. Definitely a company I have on my must see list every-time I’m at Fringe!

Among all comedy shows I have seen during my trip to the fringe, "sleeping trees" is the best in their genre of sketch comedy. It is entertaining, fun, quick, versatile and extremely friendly. Great for a night when you want to chill and not to think too hard.

I laughed so hard while watching this that I had to put my fist in my mouth because I was disrupting the quiet moments. Luckily, most of the time the rest of the audience was just as hysterical, so I didn't have to hide my laughter. They are so, so talented. Their pacing and writing is utterly brilliant - I would really recommend this show. There are so many ridiculous but wonderful moments, and they are especially good at recurring gags. I'm astonished they're not better-known.

First saw Sleeping Trees at the Fringe a couple of years ago. Since then, have made at least one of their shows every year. Their obvious enjoyment of performing and high energy levels really enhance the laughs, which are fast and frequent.

Everyone needs to go to see these boys! We’ve been going for 10 years now and they never disappoint.
Honestly one of the funniest things you’ll ever see. Just go!!

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 54 days ago

Do you remember the Silly Funny Boys? Of course you remember the Silly Funny Boys. Everybody remembers the Silly Funny Boys – or at least that’s the conceit behind this hilariously creative parody, from Fringe favourites Sleeping Trees. In the parallel universe of their show, the ‘Boys’ were a much-loved...

Fest (3/5 stars) 62 days ago

You can well imagine where the inspiration for Sleeping Trees’ entertaining new hour initially emerged from, given the poster-heavy presence of certain high-profile old kids entertainers up here, over the years. Basil Brush. Dave Benson Phillips. And particularly Dick and Dom. Thankfully the latter duo have now reinvented themselves as...
