Multi-Award winning Gein’s Family Giftshop make their highly-anticipated return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year. This is your chance for a sneak preview.
Like persistent dandruff; Kath Hughes, Edward Easton, James Meehan and Kiri Pritchard-Mclean (the silent member in name only) are back, and they are itching to show you what they’ve come up with. Skin ailments aside, the 4 strong, 5 star sketch group can’t wait to hawk out their highly anticipated third hour.
The inventive quartet are young in years but rich in plaudits including; London Sketchfest Best New Sketch Act Winners 2014 and Audience Choice Award Winners; Chortle Best Newcomer Award Winners; and Noise Festival Curator’s Choice Award Winners. They were also nominated for Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer and Chortle Best Sketch Act Award.
They took time off from the fringe in 2016 and embarked upon a successful UK tour, Jim and Kiri have broken up with each other after 8 years, the quartet recorded a second series for Radio Wales, Ed's moved back into his dead mum's house, they’ve been threatened to be sued for libel and battled with mental health problems. But we're pretty sure none of that will come up in the show, or if it does it'll be a heavily veiled allegory and it'll look like it's just a sketch about jizz or bumholes.
With a third Radio Wales series on the way the group have found time to appear on Comedy Central’s Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, Sky’s Christmas Shorts, a lawyers meeting room, BBC2 Inside No 9, BBC Radio 4s Now Show, the waiting room of a psychiatrist and Dave’s Crackanory, among others.
