“Guilt & Shame’s wild, narrative-based sketch comedy returns in a brand new show – Going Straight. ”





Guilt & Shame


Following a five star, sell-out run at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe, Guilt & Shame’s wild, narrative-based sketch comedy returns to take you by storm in a brand new show – Going Straight.

Orgies, murders, bank robberies and boy bands - gay virgin Rob and unstoppable womaniser Gabe have been involved in them all. These boys really need to change their hedonistic ways so they join a strange religious cult. But, their new god – Jeremy Clarkson - has some very weird rules. With crazy Christians, rapping dwarfs and a disco-loving transvestite, fresh, crude and funny Guilt & Shame seem to be doing anything but going straight!

Guilt & Shame are overflowing with energy and ideas, bringing contemporary issues of sexuality, religion and politics to life with skill and panache. From the second you walk through the door, they grab your attention and capture your imagination.

This depraved comedy duo invite us to share our darkest secrets but be prepared for all hell to break loose, especially when their trademark PIME routine makes an appearance.

Hitting out at subjects of drug addiction, sexual orientation and religion, this is perhaps not a show for the more easily offended punters, but for everyone else it is comedy gold. Impeccable timing, high-octane energy and some blade-sharp writing give this sketch show an edge over many others (Broadway Baby on Edinburgh Fringe 2013).

It’s a gleefully involving show. Gabe and Rob are charming, multi-talented, versatile performers, who mix and match roles and use voiceover, physical comedy and audience collusion to winning effect (The List on Edinburgh Fringe 2012).

Guilt & Shame have had previous sell-out shows at Soho Theatre, Brighton Fringe, Latitude and Bestival.
