Comedy Sock duo announce two new shows and tour dates

Hot footed from a successful month long run at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in Australia, The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre have just embarked on a pre Edinburgh Fringe Festival tour of the UK.The brand new preview show will be unveiled for the first time at The Brighton Fringe. Entitled Boo Lingerie – A Socky Horror Show The Comedy Sock duo plan to entertain and quite possibly scare audiences with their particular brand of chaotic humour that includes sketches, songs and much audience interaction.

Producer Kev Sutherland is also excited about another new venture, this time into the world of Family friendly shows. One of the top venues at at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Gilded Balloon, have invited him to write a new show, one that will be suitable for all ages.

"When I was doing excerpts from the shows on an outdoor stage in The Garden of Unearthly Delights in Adelaide I realised the kids loved the stuff I was doing as much as the grownups and they responded to The Socks on a similar level. Sharon from The Gilded Balloon also saw the potential for a different audience and invited me to write a brand new morning show for the Edinburgh Fringe this year. Obviously without the sweary words! but there should be enough layers of humour for everyone to enjoy."

Boo Lingerie - A Socky Horror Show launches at Komedia in Brighton on the 19th and 20th May.
