Beat these Sock-crime puns & a Beano artist will draw them
Press Release: Comedy - for publication
Minging Detectives - Record number of criminal puns from Sock Puppets
Comedy show wants your puns - best ones get drawn by Beano artist
From Cagney and Lace-Ups to The Usual Sockspects, from Pump Fiction to The Pong Good Friday, comedy double act the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre have come up with a criminal selection of puns to launch their new Edinburgh Fringe show, all illustrated by a star artist from The Beano. And they're looking for more!
The Socks' new show, Minging Detectives, is an hour of songs, sketches and satire on the subject of crime. They spoof everything from Inspector Morse to Breaking Bad from Z Cars to The Killing, and to promote it they've drawn cartoon parodies of the posters for 28 TV and movie crime thrillers - one for every night of their Edinburgh Fringe run.
And they'd like your suggestions for more. If you can think of a crime-meets-footwear pun that's better than The Unwashables, Strangers On A Trainer, Brighton Socks or Better Call Sole, then tweet them @falsettosocks and the best suggestions will get drawn by the Socks' performer (and Beano comic artist) Kev F Sutherland and retweeted througout the show's run.
