The Noise Next Door’s Comedy Lock In
'Genius!' ★★★★★ Fringe Review
The Comedy Lock-In is a comedy show like no other. Not only do you get a dose of “World-class improv” (USA Weekly) comedy and exclusive stand-up sets from the hottest stars on the circuit, you will also see something totally unique – Katherine Ryan trying to eat a whole birthday cake in 3 minutes? It happened! Milton Jones method acting as an amnesiac farmer? It happened! Romesh Ranganathan being surprised by his wife and kids live on stage after he spent ten minutes ranting about them? It happened!
‘Hilarious… a superior kind of chaos’ – The Daily Telegraph
A lot of shows say ‘expect the unexpected’ but this one really means it. Guests perform a short set of their own material before joining in with hilarious improv games with the UK’s premier improv per-formers – The Noise Next Door. Having become an absolute staple of the Edinburgh Fringe with a regular home in the Pleasance, the Noise Boys have travelled the length and breadth of the UK creating uniquely hilarious shows hailed as ‘21st century comedy at its very finest and funniest’ (The Stage).
Audiences shout suggestions and those on stage have no choice but to go wherever those ideas take them. Since The Comedy Lock-In first arrived in Edinburgh, punters have seen some ridiculous never-to-be-seen-again events. These include Shappi Khorsandi as a mob-boss, a real-life Harley-Davidson stunt, Myleene Klass in a Hip-Hop-Opera, Joe Lycett as a poltergeist, some live body waxing, Dave Benson-Phillips ‘gunging’ an audience member, Tim Vine as the star of a musical, and one evening where everyone in the room tried egg-nog. (Surprisingly tasty, FYI.)
Eleven-time sell-out veterans of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and one of the country’s most sought after touring acts, The Noise Next Door leave audiences everywhere in awe of their lightning-quick wit and totally original comedic talents. They have previously appeared on BBC One’s ‘The One Show’ and ITV1’s ‘Live at The Palladium’.
