ED: the totally unofficial ginger-inclusive sketch show

A late-night comedy of remixed pop hits parodying Ed Sheeran’s rise to stardom.

“A non-stop train of comedy chaos … A hilarious retelling of Ed Sheeran’s journey to fame … This show is a diamond” – Theatre Scotland – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Every second is comedy gold … Out-there, intelligently written, and unafraid of having fun … A rip-roaring, hilarious parody” – Edinburgh Fringe Review –               ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Whip-smart writing… the most ridiculous amount of fun you can have” – Theatre Thoughts Australia – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Accompanied by a glittering live band and transferring from five star reviews at Edinburgh Fringe, don’t miss Ed: the totally unofficial ginger-inclusive sketch show, charting the story of the ginger pop sensation who just wants to play music. He’s our ginger hero!

Starring Rosie Parrish and ensemble cast, Ed combines joyful comedy, first-class musical talent and a kid with suspiciously decent guitar skills. Can Ed survive fame, fortune and being ginger? A cheeky and raucous night out of remixed pop hits, slammin’ music industry peccadilloes and championing auburn culture.

Compared to the works of Bo Burnham and featuring multiple inauthentic gingers, Ed is packed with parody remixes of pop songs, character sketches and cameo appearances including a sequin-jacketed Rocket Man. Audience members also have the chance to participate onstage in a live game show. The show is classic sketch comedy with a modern twist, and best consumed after dinner or drinks (or both).
