Twins: Pret A Comedy

Fri 7th – Sun 30th Aug 2015


“Sketch comedy for people who hate sketch comedy”







Following their triumphant debut last year, completely identical Twins, Annie McGrath and Jack Barry return to the Edinburgh Fringe with another sketch comedy show for people who hate sketch comedy. Offering up more charmingly laidback, self-deprecating riff-waff and implied reluctance, Pret a Comedy is comedy at its most free.

Never shy of dodging a predictable punch-line, cherubic churl, Annie McGrath, is a fearless navigator of the off-beat. Beside her, fuelled by flights of fancy and spontaneous buffoonery, natural humourist, Jack Barry takes gormlessness into new territory. Together, they form one of the most unique, curious, and exciting double-acts around.

One year older, one year closer to death, Twins now grapple with their bucket-list. They have the length of the show to tick off everything they want to achieve in their lifetimes, from seeing the Northern Lights, to adopting a child. Twins: Pret A Comedy is an attempted sketch show and an attempt to make the most of (potentially) their final hour on this planet.

Twins: Pret A Comedy is directed by Ben Clark, one third of award-winning sketch group, Pappy's (BBC3).
