Press Release: Scottish Falsetto Socks do Shakespeare - first glimpse at Leicester Comedy Festival
The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre are the hilarious comedy double act who've been entertaining audiences around the world for nearly 10 years now. This year they tackle the works of Shakespeare, and unveil their new sketches for the first time in Leicester.
The Socks will be at The Kayal on Granby Street on Feb 12th and 20th as part of Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival, giving audiences an exclusive first glimpse at brand new material.
The Socks have been coming to Leicester every year since 2007, and every featured Leicester's iconic clock tower in their promotional photos for one of their tours. (See and download photo here: http://i42.tinypic.com/28sa29s.jpg).
The Socks say Leicester audiences are their favourites. "In the past they've let us do material about Richard the third, about the entire history of Leicester, and even let us take the mick out of the way they pronounce the 'y' at the end of Groby and Blaby, and still they keep coming back."
The Socks have done Shakespeare before: "We've done the one where Mr The Scottish Play murders all those people, and the one where Mr One With Two Daughters, er, has two daughters. Oh and the one with the Montagues and the Catapults. So we're pretty much the experts."
When we asked if they were going to show us their Coriolanus they told us to mind our own business.
You can see videos of the Socks previous Leicester appearances on Youtube. And if you want your laughter to feature on the next videos they make, see them at the Kayal on Feb 12th or the 20th doing Shakespeare.
