Aaaand Now For Something Completely Improvised (Racing Minds)

By | Published on Tuesday 5 August 2014

This improvised story-book adventure, in which the audience crafts a basic plot from which Racing Minds take their cue, is a sell-out once again. They appear flawless, for even their mistakes manage to be hilarious: the further they are pushed out of their comfort zone, the further you are pushed into a state of hysteria. Three dimensional characters are born in seconds and, even when they’re buying time, it is still time enjoyably spent by the audience. The only annoying thing is that they have a morning slot the rest of your day will be a disappointment by comparison! Spontaneous and improvised? Nah. These guys were deliberately and thoroughly crafted by the gods of comedy.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
