Men With Coconuts (Men With Coconuts)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2019

Spoiler alert: there are no coconuts. In their seventh year at the Fringe, Edinburgh-based improv troupe Men With Coconuts create a musical on the spot, with only a single audience suggestion to germinate it. As with all improv the results are a lottery, but the quality of the performers ensures that even when there’s a lull or a misfire the entertainment value is still there. The standout performers on our night were Will Naameh, who wiped the floor in the rap battle, Sam Irving, who was the glue holding it all together and Nick Lauener on the piano, who would not let himself be left out. Marvellous fun and worth a second visit!

Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose, until 26 Aug.
