Roll Up!: The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre
The award-winning Socks are back with an hour of fire-breathing, tightrope-walking, juggling, magic and burlesque. Probably. The Edinburgh Fringe legends are back at the Neath Comedy Festival by popular demand.

‘Had every single audience member… laughing until they cried’ (Edinburgh Evening New

Britain’s Got Talent Semi Finalist Noel James also returns to Neath Comedy Festival with another hour of mahem. A legend on the UK circuit and citied as an influence by such comics as Tim Vine, Frank Skinner and Dylan Moran. Noel is for our money the best comic Wales has ever produced!

“Stands out like a droll giant in a comedy land of trite dwarfs” The Independent

The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre

The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre appearing at this event

The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre are the comedy double act that has to be seen to be believed. Absolutely stupidly hilarious! Taking on anything from James Bond to Star Wars, these guys bring you a brand new show full of songs, sketches, socks and violence. The stars of BBC 3's Comedy Shuffle and Upstaged, and MTV's Best Show Ever, and the darlings of YouTube bring you songs, sketches, socks and violence. Including an entire Shakespeare play in its entirety (slightly abridged)! 'The unparalleled pinnacle of comedy puppetry' (Venue) 'Had every single audience member... laughing until they cried' (Edinburgh Evening News, Aug 2012) 'One of the truly great comic inventions of our time' (Theatre Bath).

Welsh comic wizard described as surreal, absurd, intelligent and somehow strangely attractive, but then he would say that, wouldn't he?!

(Time Out) 'Stands out like a droll giant in a comedy land of trite dwarfs' (The Independent) 'Absolutely Hilarious!' (HTV & Wales on Sunday).

A solid gagsmith who is getting bigger and bigger' (Laughing Mic Comedy).
