Jiggle & Hyde PRESENT: Sketchy Mother Pluckers.

Thursday 14th July, 7:30pm


Jiggle & Hyde are a brand new sketch comedy duo who have gathered up their combined experience in acting, broadcast, stand-up and dance to create their act and show new to the Fringe this year.
 
Both recent graduates of Logan Murray’s STAND UP AND DELIVER course, their flair for cartooning and characters brought them together to create an action packed 50-minute sketch show.
 
‘Sketchy Mother Pluckers’ has received direction from Logan Murray himself, as well as best-selling award-winning comic children’s writer Andy Stanton, author of the ‘Mr. Gum’ series of books.
 
Laying their cards on the table, these girls have had enough of poorly paid acting jobs, sharing a tiny room and life without a male companion. They’ve decided that comedians are the new rock stars and rock stars do loads of sex, so this is their way back in the game.
They tackle dating websites, TV personalities, racial stereotyping, grime music tutorials and scenes that will make you jiggle and sometimes want to hide.
 
With already clashing personalities, will their ruffled friendship survive their quest to find love or will this show reignite the true power of friendship?
