An unexpected hit last year with a knockabout show that was nominated for the Best Newcomer award, it's daft New York duo Chris and Paul

Chris and Paul

1. What is your show about?
It's a collection of fun sketches that incorporate a bit of silence, physicality, darkness and illusion.

2. Describe it in 3 words.
Fun. Visual. Hilarious.

3. What is your favourite part of the show?
We love that each sketch has it's own feel to it.

4. Complete this sentence: if you like ... clever, clean, physical humour with twist endings ... then, hell, you might just like my show.

5. If your show were a dog, what type of dog would it be?
It would be like Scooby Doo. A fast paced cartoon.

6. If you could change one thing about the Fringe, what would it be?
It'd go on for 2 months, because it's so much fun.

Reanimator the Musical, and our show 2 more times :-)

Filming a couple of web series that we've been working on.

Two guys that created a crazy world on stage that incorporated the audience.
