Mr Thing are currently performing there and are garnering rave reviews in the process, their run will last until August 26th so make sure you get down to see them and revel in the fun and creative flair on offer.



Mr Thing is captivating audiences and entertaining sold out venues with its unique and borderline risque chat show approach to extracting laughs.

The group of young comedians deliver an eclectic mix of chat, song, interviews and sketches - which by the way, includes a tap dancing puppet called Steve! They took to the stage at Edinburgh's Pleasance Courtyard theatre on August 1st kicking off their 26 show, late-night, unscripted performance which culminates this Sunday 26th.

According to Mr Thing Director Tom Clarkson, although it is not their first time performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival it has by far and away been their most memorable and enjoyable visit to date; '. . . the crowds are bigger and better than ever', he said before describing the feedback from their first show as being, “Amazing!”.



Mr Thing describes itself as a 'modern day chat show inspired by vintage variety' which aims to take entertainment back to its golden age television roots through multimedia mayhem”.

So for those of you familiar with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, I am sure you can see why this act is going down such a storm at what has become a bastion of alternative comedy and alternative performances in general, as well as acting as a catapult to success for some of the best known names in British Entertainment.

With such luminaries as Rowan Atkinson, Peter Kay, stage and screen actor Alan Rickman and Billy Connolly to name but a few; all have performed here at some point of their respective illustrious careers.


Mr Thing have been thrilling audiences with their mad cap performances all over the UK and internationally via broadcasting performances online, and this ensemble of young comedians is also keen to bring to light or to raise more serious issues albeit in a light hearted and creatively thrilling way;

"Mr. Thing was created as a way to bring all of our interests, skills and friends together to celebrate incredible things," the act says. "Through comedy, chaos and confetti, this collective of ridiculous individuals come together to join you in a non-sensical celebration of brilliant humans from every corner of the creative arts."
