Monkey Barrel Comedy
One of the Edinburgh Fringe's most celebrated talents of recent times sets out on his first full national tour. John-Luke Roberts' show this year was a complete sell-out run and one of the most talked-about shows of the festival: a dizzying avant-garde ride through the mind of a gifted comic-philosopher. One with a blue moustache. Who thinks far more about the Spice Girls than anyone should. A masterclass in prop, clown, costume and Mel C-themed comedy. And that's all we can tell you in the brochure, because his stupid title takes up the rest of the allotted space.
★★★★★ "Freewheeling escapism...A joy" Fest Magazine
★★★★★ "A masterpiece...The show is exquisite, with every last element fine-tuned to perform its function" One4Review
★★★★.5 A relentless tempest of insanely inspired shenanigans; a dizzying parade of mad skits and eccentric characters, all built on a nugget of peculiar innovation...Unflaggingly funny" Chortle
★★★★ "an impeccably choreographed, giddily inventive, turbo-charged hour" The Telegraph
★★★★ "a hit" The Times
★★★★ "Killer gags...glorious idiocy" The Guardian
★★★★ “Mind warping hour which follows through brilliantly on its own absurd logic...relentlessly funny" The List
