EDINBURGH 2017: BWW Q&A- Joke Thieves/Sketch Thieves
Tell us a bit about Joke Thieves/Sketch Thieves:
Joke Thieves is the show where comedians perform their own jokes and then each others'. It's comedy set swapping live and it's never the same twice.
Sketch Thieves is Sketch groups performing their own sketches and then each others'. It's comedy sketch swapping live! Due to the large number of sketch performers in the room its as chaotic as it is fun.
Why bring them to Edinburgh?
Both shows are Edinburgh fringe cult favourites. Joke Thieves is returning for a fifth year (after four sell-out years). Sketch Thieves is returning for a third year (after two sell-out years).
How are the two shows linked?
The shows have the same format but the players change. Joke Thieves is for stand-up comedians and Sketch Thieves is for sketch groups. We have a reputation for mixing things up too so don't be surprised if you see musical comedians, improv troupes, clowning and other top-notch variety acts dropping in to take part.
What sets it apart from other shows at the Fringe?
No other comedy show repeats every joke twice!
