Late Night Gimp Fight (Phil McIntyre Entertainments)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Oddly named Fringe veterans Late Night Gimp Fight produce a weird and wonderful show that is most certainly not one to miss. The troupe get through a vast array of sketches, with topics ranging from celebrity paedophiles to a homosexual Dracula, and the result is a side-splittingly funny show, fantastically performed by all involved. The enviable stage presence of this quintet keeps the audience completely engaged, while the show’s diversity –they break into musical numbers on a regular basis – makes for an hour of highly varied hilarity. The sketches themselves are well written and truly funny, while some of the a cappella songs performed are quite simply a stroke of genius. Who knew five gimps could put on such a good show?

Pleasance Dome, until 25 Aug, 10.00pm.
