Comedy: Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes

2 – 9 Feb @ Circus Theatre @ Fringe Central ·
Presented by Flash in the Can ·

Following sold-out Fringe World seasons in 2016 & 2017, Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes returns to Perth in 2019. Starring a rotating cast of the UK’s best comedy improv artists, the story  is new each show, with suggestions from the audience driving a bizarre mystery solved by Sherlock.

The show rotates who plays Sherlock Holmes each day, and takes inspiration from the mystery and intrigue  of the Victorian era – a time when Australia was a land of allure and enchantment to adventurous Brits.  Director Tom Wilkinson says: “The show is completely new every day, prompted by a suggestion slip we pick  out of a silk top hat. Everyone in the queue gets to suggest what the ‘case’ Sherlock will solve that day will be”.

The versatile troupe of: Daniel Nils Roberts (Racing Minds), Tom Skelton (Racing Minds), Vicky Hawley and  Caitlin Campbell will also be seen in the most exciting comedy shows across Perth, with the cast being  involved in seven shows between them, including: Aaaand Now for MORE Kiddo Kaos!, Improv Allstars Up Late and Did you Hear what I Saw?

The cast originally met while studying at Oxford University, where they joined the Oxford Imps, whose spin off group of 2011 graduates formed Racing Minds, now one of the biggest improv names on the international Fringe circuit.

**** “The production is rife with moments of sparkle and intelligence … copious amounts of talent and boundless potential” (Plays To See)

**** “This excellent improvised show is full of laughs, madness and superb deductions … very funny and  beautifully devious” (Fringe Guru)

“Good improvisation is like walking a tightrope; it’s a dangerous form of theatre without a net” (The West Australian)

“My six-year-old son and I were both in hysterics at the show we attended which was entirely  due to the talent of the ensemble rather than any luck or divine intervention. So, whilst no  two shows could possibly bare the same outcomes, I’d find it impossible to conceive that each performance would be anything less than hilarious (playandgo.com.au Australia)

“Impressive improvisational talent … fast-paced, inventive, jolly good fun” (The West Australian)

“Script-less brilliance, crowd captivated from start to finish” (Three Weeks, Edinburgh)

Comedy: Improv Allstars Up Late

30 Jan – 8 Feb @ Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den ·
Presented by Flash in the Can ·

Top stars of UK improv get together for Whose Line Is It Anyway-style games, scenes, songs and puns galore, in a unique and whip-smart melee of make-em-ups (with milk and two sugars)! This gag-packed whirlwind of an evening is a unique opportunity to catch award- winning improv talent from across a range of the biggest shows in British improvised comedy.

Tom Skelton, Vicky Hawley, Caitlin Campbell and Daniel Nils Roberts bring combined experience with Fringe World sellout favourites Racing Minds, Edinburgh Fringe  sensations Murder She Didn’t Write, marvellous returning mystery Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes and West End  Austentatious – and now they’re putting you in charge for this unmissable guffaw-fest  based entirely on audience suggestions!

If Brexit is proving anything, it’s that no one makes it up as they go along quite like the British!

“We can’t wait to bring our quick-witted, distinctly British style of silliness to Australia,” says Daniel Nils Roberts. “After all, you might soon be the only trading partner we have left! Like Prince Philip on a statevisit, we really have no idea what we’re going to say, so we need your suggestions to speed us on our way. You know that weird thing you’ve always wanted to see comedy about? Here’s your chance to shout it out and see it performed by some of the fastest, brightest and funniest comics the UK has to offer.”

“Improv at its finest” ★★★★ The Australia Times.
“Fast-paced, inventive, jolly good fun” ★★★★ The West Australian.
The best fun you can have in a confined space with over 50 strangers whilst still having your  clothes on” ★★★★ Fringe Review.
