After sell out seasons in 2018 and 2019, Sydney's favourite improvised Sherlock Holmes show is BACK for another season of dashing detectives, dastardly deeds and dazzing deductions! Every night, an hilarious new mystery based on YOUR suggestions!
THE SHOW IS IMPROVISED. THERE'S NO SCRIPT. I... I HONESTLY CAN'T EMPHASISE THAT ENOUGH.
Featuring the amazing improvisational skills of award-winning comedians Kate Coates, Will Erimya, Patrick Magee and Jon Williams - plus special guests to be announced! Suitable for most ages.
"The Game is Afoot! is a clear example of improv done right," - The Plus Ones
"Stupid. Naive. Moronic. The epitome of dumb, great improvisational comedy. ★★★★” - State of the Art
"After watching this performance, it seems suddenly clear that Sherlock Holmes was never supposed to be serious... The Game is Afoot! is a clear example of improv done right," - The Plus Ones
"Kate Coates, with her commitment to her various characters from a young girl in charge of informing people of the train timetable to a beeswax merchant with deep regrets about being an only child, is a stand-out performer... When the comedy industry has a long history of exclusion of marginalised voices and a reputation for prioritising “edgy” discomfort, improv can feel like the last bastion of friendly comedy," - Night Writes
"It is hard, however, to not honour Will Erimya as the audience favourite. Donning minor roles akin to Ricketts, Coates and Lacey, his only directive to be moronic made for some great scene-stealing performances... Sydney Comedy Festival’s newest show is the epitome of dumb, great improvisational comedy. ★★★★" - State of the Art
