The talented crew, accompanied by an impressive live band, crafts a seamless blend of audience interaction and on-stage fun. With everyone participating wholeheartedly, the camaraderie among the performers and the infectious energy they exude create an unforgettable atmosphere.
The show’s stacked cast of talented actors, featuring great singing voices and exceptional comedic timing, masterfully weaves together comedy, musicality, and acting prowess. From crafting witty musical numbers on the spot to improvising rap sequences, they showcase their mastery of the art form. Highlights include Katy Berry and Chris Grace, who both also have solo shows this year.
With its Fringe favourite status and its dedication to top-tier entertainment, Baby Wants Candy continues to be a must-see, providing an evening of non-stop hilarity, masterful musicality, and boundless creativity that sets the bar high for comedy improvisation.
