Spontaneous Sherlock — Scotland's hottest improv comedy show, and one of the biggest improvised comedy shows of the last three Edinburgh Fringe Festivals — is back! The May 17th edition in a series of regular Thursday shows at Monkey Barrel Comedy just off Edinburgh's Royal Mile.
Spontaneous Sherlock is an award-winning, entirely improvised Sherlock Holmes comedy play based on an audience suggestion of a title. Performed in two halves by some 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!
May 17th show ...performed by Paul Connolly, Mara Joy, Will Naameh, and special guest star Tamarin Fountain from The Tinderellas!
Music improvised by Jenny Laahs (piano), Nick Lauener (piano/violin) and Graham Coe (cello).
