Like persistent dandruff, Gein’s Family Giftshop are back and they are itching to show you what they’ve come up with. Skin ailments aside, the four strong, five star sketch group can’t wait to hawk out their highly anticipated third hour. What nobody anticipated was that the four would become three and then four again two weeks before the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Roping in some assistance from “the arts”- an “actor” from “LAMDA”- Gein’s invite you back into their world so you can see their latest sketches stitched together with a heavy dose of inner turmoil, fragile mental health and one dead mum (it’s very funny). Par for the course for two PE kit wearing idiots from Salford University, and a trained actor on minimum wage. Don’t worry, you don’t need to have seen the first two, it’s like Toy Story 3 but with more fake blood.
Depleted in numbers they may be, but this is Gein’s most memorable show yet ⋆⋆⋆⋆
