Men With Coconuts are one of the UK's leading improvisational comedy troupes. The award-winning, Edinburgh-based collective improvise stories, sketches and songs, culminating in a showstopping finale: an entirely improvised musical. Unplanned, unscripted, and unbelievable!

Their critically-acclaimed monthly Scottish Storytelling Centre shows feature a different guest performer from the world of sketch, clown, poetry, and more! Every show entirely different.

'One of the best improv shows I've seen. Skilful and hysterical.' (Jo Caulfield)

Winner: Spirit of the Fringe Award (Prague Fringe 2016)

'Hilarious... make sure these guys are on your list!' (Prague Fringe Review)

'Absurdly ridiculous and downright hilarious' (Wee Review)

'Forget everything you thought you knew about improvisation... a must see show!' (EdFringeReview)

Special guest: Leyla Josephine
