Four Screws Loose In The Big Screw Up (James Grant Comedy)

By | Published on Thursday 14 August 2014

Four guys, a lot of wigs and a brilliant soundtrack: this is the sketch show to end all sketch shows. The Four Screws are full of energy, whimsy and disturbingly accurate impersonations of pop cult celebrities, and their charisma and camaraderie engages the audience from the second they jump into the spotlight. As the troupe make a mockery of traditional stories, popular music and even Jeremy Kyle, no one can help but be charmed and delighted by these (in their own words) screw ups. You will be hard-pressed to find another comedy troupe at the Fringe who can make an audience feel quite so in on the joke, and yet so pleasantly surprised. A laugh-a-minute sketch show with heart, hilarity and brilliant imagination.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug.
