The Real MacGuffins – Skitsophrenic

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

What do Hitler, Dickens, and Oedipus have in common? The Real MacGuffins. Changing characters, eating lard, playing with dildos, and forcing laughter are their specialities. With insanely witty writing, these three explore the links between comedy and madness, calling on the likes of artistic greats to do their bidding. If you don’t think it’s possible to put a fresh twist on cock jokes and straight jackets, after their performance you’ll stand corrected. Any good performer can have a conversation with the audience, but these guys were stomping around their sell out house, handing out bits of script to students and putting tape on old men’s faces. I’m just glad they didn’t spot my press pass, I would have been crucified.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 28 Aug (not 16), 4.30pm (5.30pm), £8.00 – £11.00, fpp139.
