Spontaneous Sherlock Shows at

Monkey Barrel Comedy, Edinburgh


Spontaneous Sherlock is an entirely improvised Sherlock Holmes comedy play, based on an audience suggestion of a title. Performed in two halves by three of Scotland's most critically-acclaimed comedy improvisers, with live Victorian musical accompaniment.


Plus, stick around after the second interval for a bonus improv comedy set by the cast of Spontaneous Sherlock in their ordinary, non-Victorian clothes!
