The Kagools have been making waves in Edinburgh for a couple of years, so we're so pleased to get them to the Tringe for us all to see. And we welcome back the fantastic Tiff Stevenson who has been a favourite of ours for a long time.
The Tringe Festival Passport is a season ticket to every night at the Court Theatre. 3-weeks of comedy! It's a wonderful opportunity to see so much great comedy for the one-off bargain price. Please note, there is a seat at every gig for every passport. Your passport must be used as much as possible. The Passport can be shared amongst friends/family/colleagues.
The multi-award winning physical comedy duo bring a brand new hour of pure joy and anarchic buffoonery 'brimming with wit and imagination' ***** (TVBomb).
Join these dazzling idiots for (probably) The Greatest Show on Earth.
"Following in the hallowed tradition of Rowan Atkinson’s Mr Bean” (Broadway Baby), The Kagools: Cirque De Kagool is a physical comedy show featuring two silent and strange, but friendly, characters. The Kagools live both in this realm (live on stage) and in an alternate reality (via an on-stage screen), which they effortlessly interact with to hilarious effect. Through mimed sketches, audience participation and using interactive multimedia, you’ll follow them on their ridiculous adventures. The show is universally appealing as the entire story is told physically, and as such is suitable for speakers of all languages and to young and old alike.
Tiff Stevenson brings you some of best bits of her critically acclaimed tour shows and works up new material. It's like a special but more special.
***** The Sunday Herald, This is a heartfelt, hilarious, provocative, important hour of stand-up from one of the best in the business.
***** The Mirror, It's punchy and political but in the best, most human sort of way. It's charming but hard-hitting and it's radical, but not self-consciously so.
***** Edinburgh Festivals, Stevenson’s genius is that she draws you in over and over again for what you think is going to be something quite gentle, but turns out to be an artfully concealed switchblade that you don’t see coming until it’s too late. Ouch, she got you.
**** Broadway Baby, Stevenson discusses her chosen topics with more wit and charisma than most, mixing stark realities with hilarious crudities
**** Three Weeks Tiff Stevenson possesses a rare level of insight. Effortlessly marrying the personal with the political by demonstrating their inextricable bond, her routine on the violent sexualisation of young girls is particularly poignant
**** Daily Record Superior and thought provoking stand up with a political edge
