Racing Minds

SUMMARY

Racing Minds transport you back to where it all began for an evening of comedy, music, games and right royal fun. Think bunting, cupcakes, trumpets and sharp suits, and prepare to laugh yourself back in time at Oxford’s alternative jubilee party.

There will be songs, dances, sketches, stand-up and poetry from a selection of local favourites, and in the second half you will witness the only Oxford preview of what is set to be one of the hottest improvised comedy tickets at this years’ Edinburgh Fringe.

----------

RACING MINDS present ‘AAAAND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY WIRELESS’

No wires – no script! Racing Minds join the twinkly fingers of a virtuoso musician (and an improvising sound-effects man) to conjure, from nothing, a 50’s-style comic radio play! Old-fashioned microphones, sharp suits, greased hair… all the hallmarks of classic radio adventures with one unique twist: this time the audience are in charge. The radio just went live.

‘Genuinely reach the heights of early Python’ ★★★★ (Three Weeks 2011)

'No.1 Fringe Improv 2011' (WhatsOnStage)

‘Comic genius… can they really be improvising this?’ (Cherwell)

Dress up like it’s 1952! Party like it’s 1952! Laugh like it’s 1952!

It’s what your Queen would want.
