Sleeping Trees: World Tour (Sleeping Trees)

By | Published on Sunday 26 August 2018

The most otherworldly of world tours. Dynamite gang John, James and Josh have a knack for transporting their audiences to strange worlds – from the worlds of Mafia, Western and Sci-Fi in their previous hit shows, now to the strangest hidden crevices on Earth (allegedly). Having visited arguably some of the least exotic locations, between the Amazonian spitfalls and a dingy prison in Hawaii, the trio guide us through a pretty bizarre and unlikely set of scenarios, which involve musicals about walls, ‘Home Alone’ fan clubs, and a man who’s really bad at making lasagne. This year’s show is perhaps lacking in punch compared to their previous Fringe offerings, but the group still have an unparalleled gusto, setting them apart as one of the most dynamic and energetic sketch comedy groups out there.

Assembly George Square Studios, until 26 Aug.
