The Shambles, York’s premier improvised comedy troupe, return to Edinburgh this year to split your sides with unique scenes of exuberance and hilarity based entirely on your suggestions.

The Encyclopaedia Shambolica boasts nearly 100 short-form improvised comedy games including classic favourites and our own home-grown specialities - guaranteeing there’s something for everybody. Every night we handpick a new selection of these to create a unique, never-seen-before show. From sea shanties to shopping channels, interrogation rooms to mystery restaurants, biblical epics to chick flicks and beyond, The Shambles will sing, dance, mime, pun, and act their way through the evening to delight and surprise audiences with their memorable brand of comedy.

Ever watched a show and wanted more power over what you’re seeing? Well, with The Shambles, you take control! Every scene, show and song is based entirely on your suggestions. We are ‘a friendly, likeable bunch … you are guaranteed to have a laugh’ (BroadwayBaby.com). Come along to see a troupe ‘Brimming with vigorous energy and enthusiasm’ (YorkVision.co.uk) and witness improvised comedy that is ‘chaotic madness but unquestionably funny’ (EdFringeReview.com). There will be nightly prizes for the best and weirdest suggestions, so start warming up your funny bone!
