‘For anyone genuinely interested in comedy and comedians, this is the must-see show of the festival’ ★★★★★ (Scotsman)
Fast, furious, reliably brilliant, different every night! Literally as they walk on stage, in full view of the audience, a line-up of the best comedians working today are flashed a never-before-seen “set list” of topics and must instantly create a spontaneous and original NEW stand-up set, right then and there. No existing material allowed: it’s all improvised!
Previous Set Listers include Trevor Noah, Bob Odenkirk, Hannibal Buress, Robin Williams, who raved about it: http://youtu.be/93464gfTA50

‘For those that are a little bored by ‘safe’ and lacklustre pre-written comedy, this is the ultimate adrenaline inducing trip, watching a group of comics face the sheer panic of prompts that are not only unseen, but are also deliberately designed to be difficult… If you get the chance I do urge you to go at least once. The line-up changes every night (so do the prompts) and it is just a fantastic opportunity to see some of the best comics at the Fringe at their most raw, most unfiltered, and most interesting.’ ★★★★ (Broadway Baby)
