Description

The twisted minds of Gein's Family Giftshop ('Brilliant' (Reece Shearsmith)) and sweaty bodies of Goose ('Brilliant' (Guardian)) combine to bring you something brand new: Tarot. In the attic of a cobbled Edinburgh courtyard, a live tarot reading is held. Sketches spin out of the cards and, as the show nears midnight, the significance of the reading as a whole begins to come into focus. Come to have your faith restored in a dying art. Sketch, not Tarot. An interactive, fast-paced sketch show inspired by and based on a love of tarot reading. What will the cards hold for you?

Once more, Gein's Family Giftshop deliver the goods, getting better and better each year. Tarot had me, my friend and the whole room in tears of laughter, curling over in hilarious agony. There's a gut-wrenching joke at every opportunity, I strongly suggest you bring tissues to mop up the tears of laughter you will shed. Can't wait to see them again in their future shows.
