Police Cops: Badass Be Thy Name (Blue Book AM)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2019

Police Cops return to the Fringe with their unique brand of rip-roaring, sketch-style comedy. This time, we’re transported into the hubbub of Manchester’s nightlife, following one man’s rejection of his nine-to-five job to embark on an unruly mission of slaying vampires and trying to defeat a hilariously mischievous devil. Wonderfully meta throughout, this daft show gives a satirical take on the kitchen-sink drama, fusing dancing, singing, multi-rolling and everything in between. With clever puns and risqué humour, the multi-disciplined performers bounce off each other’s improvisations, heightening their enthralling comic chemistry. Extravagant physical comedy combined with razor-sharp quips make this fast-paced and quirky trio very exciting to watch.

Assembly George Square Studios, until 26 Aug.
