Spontaneous Sherlock — Scotland's hottest improv comedy show, and one of the biggest improvised comedy shows of EdFringe 2015 and 2016 — is back! The July 20th edition in a series of regular Thursday shows at Monkey Barrel Comedy just off Edinburgh's Royal Mile.
Spontaneous Sherlock is an entirely improvised Sherlock Holmes comedy play, based on an audience suggestion of a title. Performed in two halves by three of Scotland's most critically-acclaimed comedy improvisers, with live Victorian musical accompaniment.
Plus, stick around after the second interval for a bonus improv comedy set by the cast of Spontaneous Sherlock in their ordinary, non-Victorian clothes!
July 20th show performed by Will Naameh and Paul Connolly. And our special guests, we are utterly thrilled to have Caroline Mathieson (of To Be Continued...) and Charlie Hindley (of the Men With Coconuts) coming to perform with us again!
Music improvised by Jenny Laahs (piano), Nick Lauener (piano/violin) and Graham Coe (cello).
