Men With Coconuts are an award-winning improvisational comedy troupe hailing from Edinburgh.
After debuting at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, they have since firmly established themselves as Scotland's leading professional musical improv troupe. Their improv performances have been marked out for their energy, easy confidence, self-effacing good humour and quick-fire comedy.
«Slamprov» is a blistering mix of poetry and improvisational comedy. Scotland's finest poets and storytellers join forces with Scotland's leading improv comedians for a show like no other! Poems and stories will be used as inspiration for completely improvised scenes, sketches and songs. Part poetry show, part comedy show, every show completely different and unique.
Featuring leading poets from across the Scottish poetry scene (including literary sensation Chris McQueer — Writer), and improvisers from smash-hit Edinburgh Fringe group Men With Coconuts!
