"A must see show yet again" ★★★★★ 5 stars from York Mix

Our first ★★★★★ 5 star review of this year's Fringe, thankyou very much York Mix...

Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre – In Space

The last show of the evening was a complete indulgence of mine as I reviewed last year’s show by the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre (I’m such a fan of the Eric and Ernie of the sock world).
In fact I saw Kev F Sutherland (the man who is socks) flyering while I was waiting to see Phill Jupitus He’s one of the hardest working comedians on the Fringe and he doesn’t take his success for granted.

Last year it was a socky horror show. This year the title is In Space (Gilded Balloon Teviot 10.15pm). There was a fantastic song about Fireball XL5 and re-enactment of Aliens, Star Wars, Blakes 7 (sort of) and a brilliant improvised impersonation of the new Doctor Who (Peter Capaldi – a very bad choice for the Doctor in my opinion).

Everyone was cheering and joining in, loving every minute of it except the girl sat next to me who clearly didn’t get the joke, didn’t laugh and even got her mobile phone out at one point – it just prove you can’t please all of the people all of the time. But a must see show yet again.
