“…it’ll be a different show each day for three days.”
WHO: Joshua George Smith, Writer performer
WHAT: “Everybody has their favourite film genre, whether it’s rom-com, action, independent amateur Japanese anime, the list is endless. This year, multi award-winning comedy trio the Sleeping Trees are bringing all of their hit movie shows back to the Edinburgh Fringe: Mafia, Western and Sci-Fi! Without any props or set to aid them and with each show accompanied by a rip-roaring live score, only someone who laments fun would consider missing the greatest movie trilogy since Big Momma’s House. All three shows directed by Tom Parry (Pappy’s/BBC Radio 4). Amused Moose Comedy Award Finalists 2016.”
WHERE: Pleasance Dome (Venue 23)
WHEN: 17:30 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is actually our 8th year at the fringe. We first came back in 2009 when we were at the hive (before it was cool) and we have been back every year since. We have always said we will take a break once we’ve done 10. That feels fair.
Tell us about your show.
So we are doing our last three years shows on rotation. So it’ll be a different show each day for three days. They were all written as part of a collaboration with our friends and musicians the Physics House Band and now we have the incredibly talented Ben Hales taking over the job as one man band. After the fringe these shows will be embarking on a bit of a regional tour up until spring, with a little stop off in Belgium. It’s about time we broke the Belgium scene.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
If you fancy a different kind of three piece I can’t recommend Gein’s Family Giftshop enough. Everything I see of there’s is gold and I can’t wait to see their show this year.
