Best Comedy Award nominees - Scottish Falsetto Socks

Ha-hey! We're nominees for Best Comedy in the Awards. Which awards, you ask? Only the Greater Manchester Fringe Awards!


The Awards took place back on August 3rd and, in the whirlwind of Edinburgh, we slightly missed it. So it's only today that we realised we were one of the five nominees for Best Comedy. Thanks Manchester, we're honoured and flattered.

And that was for an Edinburgh Preview show, by the way. The finished version of the show that we're doing every night this month knocks spots off that show. We can only hold our breath waiting for more nominations.


The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre ...And So Am I is at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014, July 30 - Aug 25 Gilded Balloon, 10.30pm
