100-Word Fringe: “Baby Wants Candy” at Assembly George Square

This is more like it. I’m cookie-cut to enjoy improv so Baby Wants Candy easily entranced me this time last year with their full-length improvised musical. Something like this is obviously going to be hit and miss, but anything I’ve seen has been startlingly impressive and groin-achingly joyful. “Fire Safety And Me” told the often coherent story of an unfortunate couple trying for their 15th child, via an angry bear, a devil named Sharome, the Wicked Witch, and an arsonist adoptee. A stunner of a show, with specific praise for star player Eliza Skinner as the aforementioned Sharome. FEED ME.

Baby Wants Candy is playing at the Assembly George Square until August 29th.

Tickets: £8.50
