About Baby Wants Candy: The Completely Improvised Full Band Musical

The Fringe’s sell-out smash hit of 2015 and 2016 and one of last year’s Top Ten Reviewed Comedy Shows returns this summer with 27 brand new, ad-libbed, undefined, exhilarating top-selling 55-minute musicals!!

Every show is totally off-the-cuff, the most ridiculous and obscure musicals the stage has ever seen, all taken from audience suggestions. Every night is the opening and closing night of a smash-hit musical, created on the spot. Where else in the world could you see the critically acclaimed Kanye West Side Story? Or the ever popular Mary Poppins Has Ebola? And don’t forget the award-winning, sell-out phenomenon Nicola Sturgeon, Hypnotist. Accompanied by a full band, the show is a roller-coaster ride of spontaneously choreographed numbers. Totally unscripted, unguided, unpredictable and often uncontrollable, this is THE must see show of the festival!

Baby Wants Candy is one of the longest running and most celebrated improv troupes in the world, constantly selling out runs in New York, Chicago, LA and Edinburgh and performing in total over 3,000 completely improvised musicals. It has launched the careers of various top comedic actors and writers in the US, from Craig Cackowski (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development) to Jack McBrayer (Kenneth in 30 Rock), Vanessa Bayer and Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live), Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s Silicon Valley) and Peter Gwinn (Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report).
