The World Of Shrimpology (Shrimps)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

Dive into the world of the Shrimps, an improvisational comedy troupe from Sheffield University, as they lead you on a journey to establish a new religion. Audience suggestions are used as fuel for a number of different humorous games, the results of which produce the founding blocks of the nascent faith – patron saints and holy relics – and there’s even a song thrown in to aid the spreading of the gospel. These guys are quick and incredibly witty, easily engaging with the audience, and though there are a few who seemed slightly awkward and not entirely comfortable being on stage, the group’s energy and originality easily makes up for this. For lively entertainment, this show is easily a catch of the day.

Just The Tonic at The Store, 4 – 19 Aug (not 16), 2.40pm (3.40pm), £5.50 – £6.50, fpp166.
