Norris and Parker Ed2016

On the warmest day of the Fringe so far, the Attic at Pleasance Courtyard was somewhat sauna-like, but that didn’t stop duo Katie Norris and Sinead Parker from launching with gusto into their all-singing, all-dancing hour of sketch comedy. This high-energy show introduced us to a selection of mirthful characters, including the Feminazis; an incompetent 1980s cop and his assistant; and a pair of boorish Australians who’ve set up their own cleaning business and are looking for new staff. With musical accompaniment from Tim Burton-esque pianist Chris, who plays an original score, ‘See You at the Gallows’ celebrates the weird, the wonderful and the downright daft, all tied together by a comic fracturing of the ladies’ friendship.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 28 Aug.
