About: If you recognise any of these cheeky chappies it could be because they are the UK Impractical Jokers and have been playing many tricks on each other for the good of Channel 5 and Comedy Central in the past year. The guys are a sketch comedy group called Late Night Gimp Fight and they are returning to the Fringe for their first show in 4 years and ready to make amny audiences laugh, giggle and wonder what they have let themselves into!
They are known as having sketches that are outside the box and probably not what you would expect and also in some cases musical numbers! (in recent years they had a very different lyric version to a One Direction song). This year the guys are now in their thirties and bacl to bring their silliness and fun to the world of Edinburgh, they have been nominated for Edinburgh Comedy awards and also won a Chortle award. Will this years be award winning funny? There is only onw way to find out – grab yourself a ticket!
