PAPPY’S: LAST SHOW EVER!
Pappy’s bring us a preview of their brand new show full of sketches, songs and silliness! But is this really the end for ‘the funniest sketch troupe on the fringe’? (Scotsman). After appearances on Channel 4, Radio 4 and BBC3, five hit Edinburgh shows, three national tours and two award-winning podcasts, are they finally throwing in the towel? Edinburgh Award nominees, Chortle Award winners, Loaded LAFTA winners. **** (Independent on Sunday). **** (Mirror). **** (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Masterful comic invention’ (Guardian). ‘A jaw-dropping, laugh-a-second spectacular from three young men who are supremely talented writers and performers’ (Chortle.co.uk).
