“Improv doesn't get better than this” ★★★★★ (The Wee Review)
“The whole cast was outstanding” ★★★★ (Broadway Baby)
Starring an ever-changing cast of some of the country's finest comedians, Criminal is an anarchic improvised murder mystery show like no other.
One comedian assumes the role of detective; three comedians play suspects. The suspects are each given a playing card, telling them which of them is the murderer. Weaving in details suggested by the audience – the location of the body, the victim's occupation, what was found at the crime scene – the detective must find the killer and bring justice raining down on them.
Since Criminal's conception in 2015, a host of high-profile comics have performed at the gig, including Deborah Frances-White, Rachel Parris, Marcus Brigstocke, Josie Lawrence, John Finnemore, Colin Hoult, and Miles Jupp.
