Tarot

Chortle's Top Comedy Show of 2019

The twisted minds of Gein's Family Giftshop ('Brilliant' (Reece Shearsmith)) and sweaty bodies of Goose ('Brilliant' (Guardian)) combine to bring you something brand new: Tarot. In the heart of Leicester, a live tarot reading is held. Sketches spin out of the cards and, as the show finishes, the significance of the reading as a whole begins to come into focus.

Come to have your faith restored in a dying art. Sketch, not Tarot. An interactive, fast-paced sketch show inspired by and based on a love of tarot reading. What will the cards hold for you? You'll also see sets from Goose and Gein's Family Giftshop. This is to save money on actual tour support and to prepare for their acrimonious breakup (like when your parents buy a duvet that splits into two).

'One of the balls-out funniest show of the Fringe' - Chortle

'One of the darkest comedy shows I've seen...spectacular' - RGM

'Bark out loud funny...the whole show is startlingly live' Guardian

'Deliciously dark and straight from the cobbled streets of Royston Vasey' Skinny

Directed by Kiri Pritchard-McLean
