Lords of Strut: Late Night TV Talk Show

Lords of Strut is hands-down the most fun I’ve had at Fringe this year. From the very start of this sketch narrative show, straight through to the finish, Lords of Strut had me laughing my ass off in total awe.

Lords of Strut is offensive, fantastic, and absurdly brilliant

Throughout the show they have an incredible energy and fantastic chemistry. The dancing is completely jaw-dropping, able to keep anyone on the edge of their seat in disbelief. And it’s amazing what the performers manage to fit into an hour. So many goofball gags. So many fantastic jokes. So many ridiculous songs. These guys perform in a way that is so ‘out there’ that it feels almost like British panto at times (minus the custard and horses). It’ll knock your socks right off.

The ‘plot’ of the show - though it hardly needs one - is the hilarious feud between two Irish brothers, Sean and Seamas, which is all ‘happening on live television’. What came next was far more bold than I had thought possible. These guys are unbelievably talented. They pump out totally wild, over the top, maximalist humor -- like something you’d see in films like Borat. Maybe you think this isn’t your kind of humor. Give it a try. Believe me, you’ll be impressed.

This is an hour of comedy that is so hilarious and outrageous (especially toward the end of the show), that you’ll be falling out of your chair laughing. Lords of Strut is offensive, fantastic, and absurdly brilliant. A full 5 stars, no doubt. This is prime entertainment. You will be sorrowly disappointed if you don’t make it to Lords of Strut this Fringe.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

The action-packed talk show that's all talk and no action. A fantastical hour of slapstick mayhem in the guise of a TV talk show. The talented but idiotic brothers Seamus and Sean's dream has come true; the dream to host their own TV show. It all goes terribly wrong and hilariously right! Through the disaster and tornado of laughs, watch a thrilling soap opera into the absurd: talking rocks, stupid gags, audience participation and dance routines so flash it could be the 80s! 'An hour of belly laughs' **** (Irish Times).
