WINNER: Best Kids Show – Leicester Comedy Festival 2018

John Robertson’s terrifying, live-action videogame 'The Dark Room’ now comes with a family-friendly flavour! This one man/multiple victim contestant interactive game show is a cult-hit worldwide: like the tiny, drunken adults they are, it turns out kids love yelling, violence and computer games. Parents love the nostalgia of the 8-bit graphics and letting the kids know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of a barrage of unreasonable demands for a change.

Part stand-up comedy show, part theatre; all interactive and insane - this award-winning, genre-defining, mixture of improv comedy and retro gaming all combines to become a deranged rock n’ roll game show – now suitable for ages 11 and up. Families will find themselves trapped inside a live-action videogame! How will they escape?! Will they:

A) Find the light switch?
B) Go North?
C) Explode in a pile of stinking guts?  

If the kids win, there are REAL(ly terrible) PRIZES! But if they lose, The Dark Room keeps whichever of their parents they like the least. This is an interactive, immersive, non-patronising, gaming-come-comedy show that kicks butt and doesn’t swear…much.

A must see for anyone who wants to treat/punish their little darlings with a cult hit, super fun, fear-filled interactive adventure like no other. It's bonkers fun for all the family.

Information

Monkey Barrel Comedy is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Our rooms are located at the top end of Blair Street, just off the Royal Mile and can be easily accessed by Bus and Taxi from South Bridge or by foot from either Cowgate or the High Street.

As with many venues in the traditional and historical Old Town, some of our spaces have accessibility limitations. Please contact us in advance (via email to our Box Office at boxoffice@monkeybarrelcomedy.com) if you have any access requirements, so we can advise on the options available. 

MB1 is at ground level and can be accessed via most wheelchairs with some adjustments made for you outside the venue. Please let us know in advance of buying a ticket (via the Box Office) so we can confirm and be prepared for your arrival. Because of the physical changes required outside of the venue, we cannot guarantee entry unless we are notified in advance.

MB3 and MB4 are accessed via a series of steps. If you are able to move over short distances, our team can assist and looking after any mobility equipment.

If you have any questions, please contact our Box Office at boxoffice@monkeybarrelcomedy.com.
