Late Night Gimp Fight Guest Blog
Performing in Scotland has always been a memorable experience for us, for many different reasons. We've encountered some of our loudest, drunkest, but best audiences of all time in Scotland and we hope this continues when we make our Glasgow International Comedy Festival debut at the Tron next month.
It was in Scotland that we got our best ever heckle. A heavily intoxicated Scottish gentleman had stumbled into the venue we were performing in, probably more in search of somewhere to sit rather than due to his penchant for gimps. He fell asleep within five minutes of the show starting, and when he woke up we were in the middle of a sketch set at a funeral. He was so drunk and disorientated at this point, that he believed he was at an actual funeral, so when he saw us 'performing a sketch' in his context he shouted 'Have some respect!'… and then passed out again.
So, the benchmark for audiences has been set... we can only hope Glasgow steps up to the plate! We're really excited to be bringing our show to Glasgow as we've not performed at the festival before. We haven't even been to Glasgow. Actually – that's not strictly true, I once drove through it and saw someone driving a bed down the street. An actual bed. True.
For those of you not familiar with the gimps, this video should give you a little idea of what we're about. You can expect plenty of dark sketches, big theatrical set pieces, and a surprisingly moving sketch about Henry the Hoover. We look forward to seeing you there!
Late Night Gimp Fight will be performing at the Tron Theatre on 30 & 31 March at 10.30pm. For more information and to book tickets, click here or call 0844 395 4005.
