Saramouche Jones

Three recommended shows for Friday at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

Fills Monkey – Incredible Drum Show
Tipped pre-Festival by Caro, and now back here again to be heavily tipped by our reviewer. “It leaves you hitting out rhythms on tables and knees long after it finishes” says he of this drumtastic show. Though do ask before using other people’s knees for your subsequent rhythm hitting, won’t you?
Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.

The School Of Night – Rhapsodes
“Witty and educational to an equally impressive degree, ‘The School of Night’ is improv at its zany best” says our reviewer of ‘The School Of Night – Rhapsodes’. It’s an improv show in the theatre programme, though there are plenty of laughs to be had alongside all the theatrics and literary references. This show only runs till Monday, so get in quick.
C, until 17 Aug.

Scaramouche Jones
Best known to us as a former ThreeWeeks reviewer (many many moons ago), but probably better known to you as both a Penny Dreadful and a regular in both the Fringe’s comedy and theatre programmes, it’s Thom Tuck in ‘Scaramouche Jones’ “a perfectly balanced hour of storytelling that continues to raise its own standards every five minutes”, says us.
Underbelly, until 30 Aug
