The Act

Enticed down from the mountains with the promise of raw meat, these savage creatures were washed, shaved and taught to use cutlery. Now, dressed like gentlemen and schooled in the twin arts of humour and needlework, BEASTS conspire to craft slick, hilarious and sublimely surprising sketches. Critically acclaimed and impeccably dressed BEASTS are Owen Roberts, James McNicholas and Ciarán Dowd. After a sell-out second Edinburgh show last year, these monstrously funny sketchmen are all set for a storming 2014, proving that you can mix style and substance with skill but that still won’t kill the beast within.

‘Hilariously funny – brought to mind early Pythons. Could this entertaining trio go all the way? This critic thinks so.’ (The Sunday Times)

‘The second show from this energetic three-piece is a giddy delight. BEASTS are definitely ones to keep an eye on’ (Chortle)

‘Side-splittingly funny★★★★ (Three Weeks)

‘Some of the most finely crafted comedy I've seen’ ★★★★★ (Broadway Baby)

The Show

A monster of a double-bill with Foil, Arms & Hog and Beasts presenting 40 minutes each of their best sketch comedy. Ireland’s top sketch group Foil, Arms and Hog, fly in from their debut shows at San Francisco and Chicago SketchFest to give us some of their twisted, fast-paced, cymbal-smashing sketch comedy.

Afterwards, BEASTS present a dazzling array of skits, sketches and interpretive dance. They'll be performing some old favourites from two sell-out Edinburgh shows, as well as some exciting new material for 2014.
