Pippa has taken six shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, bagging a nomination for The Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer in 2008 for her debut show .
He has been improvising for 15 years, since his first shows as a student with Edinburgh University’s resident troupe , as well as shows at Polka Theatre, Bristol Old Vic, The Nuffield, Leicester Haymarket, The Mermaid and panto at Stratford East.
The cast includes Ruth Bratt, Justin Brett, Dylan Emery, Pippa Evans, Susan Harrison, Sean Mc Cann, Adam Meggido, Philip Pellew, Andrew Pugsley, Oliver Senton, Lucy Trodd, and Sarah-Louise Young, with seven cast members appearing per performance plus a live on-stage band.
A joyous, uproarious collaboration propelled by the quickwittedness of the multi-talented cast and their mischievous onlookers.
Sometimes, though, the premise or plot of the story is all right there in the title. The characters might point out the thing with a Title Drop.
That's when you can say that the story is "Exactly What It Says on the Tin". The names of action shows designed for children tend to have this as a distinguishing feature, as do many pornographic films, but it certainly doesn't stop there. If a title is going for this kind of transparency in description, it may also be Shaped Like Itself; but Shaped Like Itself tends to fail at actually being descriptive in the way that Exactly What It Says On The Tin always is. This trope is only for titles or names given deliberately by authors or marketers.
