Aaaand Now For Something Completely Wireless – Perth Fringe World, Australia

Acclaimed improvised comedy quintet Racing Minds, conjure, from nothing, a 50’s-style comic radio-play!

The show is an improvised homage to the adventurous radio theatres of yore and it's delighted live audiences in attendance and listeners to our podcast - we record every performance and release our favourites as a 'real' radio play to over 500,000 Soundcloud followers.

As a genuinely improvised piece, complete with plot-relevant news broadcasts and audience inspired songs, every performance is completely different and unique to that evening. Every show features a guest "Foley Artist" (local and international guests in Perth) and our experience and interplay as a group means there's no such thing as a boring show! 

Old-fashioned microphones, sharp suits, greased hair... all the hallmarks of classic radio adventures with one unique twist: this time the audience is in charge.

Long-limbed award-winner tries to pin down the things that we should really let go. A comedy show with live instrumentation, emotional manipulation and 'truly masterful gags, crafted with intellectual panache’ (Chortle). There’ll be freestyles as well, but they’ll probably be quite sad.

Chris Turner and Alice Winn abuse their psychic link for your amusement. Quirk-packed characters, quotable one-liners and sepia-tinged vignettes tumble out of this completely improvised exploration of everyday conversation.

Weathering an hour of tedious smalltalk, a visit to the hairdressers can be a conversational chore. From this point, UK improvisers Alice Winn and Chris Turner unravel and reweave a whole host of memorable characters, imagined environments and poignant tales in a high-wire hour of unscripted comedy.

“Belgium Vs England” - what a game you wanna say ? That’s right ! When the crazy, imaginative and absurd British meet the surrealistic and creative Belgians, it leads undoubtedly to fireworks. To represent England, let’s meet the Racing Minds, a long-form improv quintet, formed in 2010 and has met success 2 years in a row at world famous Edinburgh Comedy festival. For Belgium, we will have spectacular members of the professional Belgian improv League. Two teams, one stage and themes given by the public, that’s going to be some serious crazy stuff. Be sure to be there to cheer for your favourite team.
