Men With Coconuts

Scotland's leading improv troupe make their New Zealand debut in Nelson with an hour of award winning improvised comedy sketches and songs, culminating in a showstopping finale – an entirely improvised musical. These Edinburgh Fringe favourites push their art form to a new level. Unplanned, unscripted, and unbelievable!

The troupe debuted at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and have firmly established themselves as Scotland's leading professional musical improv troupe, winning accolades both at home and abroad. Their performances have been marked out for their energy, easy confidence, self-effacing good humour and quick-fire comedy. They are bringing their flagship, eponymous show to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time in 2019.
