Outside of their regular weekly Edinburgh shows at Monkey Barrel Comedy, The Spontaneous Players also get out on the road. Their shows are hilarious, a little irreverent and well – spontaneous. Their current tour is all of that, and more, as it takes a pop at Potter.
Since its inception in early 2015, The Spontaneous Players have become one of the most critically-acclaimed improv comedy troupes in the United Kingdom. In addition, Spontaneous Sherlock was one of the biggest free shows of Edinburgh Fringe 2015, 2016 and 2017 performing to over 6000 people each Fringe.
A couple of years ago, Spontaneous Potter made its debut year at the Edinburgh Fringe with Gilded Balloon, completely selling out its entire 26-night run, and winning the Scottish Comedy Award for Best Variety.
We think the reviews pretty much say it all……..
- Scottish Comedy Award 2018, Best Variety (Winners)
- “Flawlessly executed improv comedy… pure, unadulterated hilarity” – EdFringeReview (★★★★★)
- “Side-splitting laughter across the entirety of the performance” – Three Weeks (★★★★★)
- “These guys are going to be huge” – Breakneck Comedy (★★★★★)
- “Manic laughter” – Lumber Room (★★★★★)
- “Unbeatably clever” – Edinburgh Guide 2017 (★★★★★)
- “”An ingenious, laugh out loud show… perfect for Potterheads and muggles alike” – Edinburgh Guide 2018 (★★★★★)
You must remember that Spontaneous Potter is an entirely improvised Harry Potter comedy play, based on an audience suggestion of a fanfiction title – with live musical accompaniment! So each show will be different and equally hilarious, depending on the audience at that performance.
Spontaneous Potter will be apparating into the Ffwrnes Llanelli – Stiwdio Stepni on Tuesday April 14th at 7:30pm. To get your tickets, go here. POTTER
They’re also performing Spontaneous Potter Kidz at 2pm that afternoon. Same style of show, only for kids, and trust us, they will absolutely love it. Just to alert you, the kids show is always really popular, so we’d advise you get in quickly. To get your tickets, go here. KIDZ
The adult show then moves to the Glee Club in Cardiff on Monday 27th April at 7:30pm. Tickets for that can be had here. SPONTANEOUS
