Hennessey and Friends

Hennessy and Friends skipped a Fringe year in 2013, but 2014 now marks their return to the Festival. Hennessy and Friends are a trio of comedy actors – Steven, Dave and Miranda – who combine to make a very funny sketch act. The show is a free one in Cowgatehead and is called ‘Murmurs’.

Whilst there is no one particular theme to show, it is tied together very well with jokes, and flows beautifully start to finish with recurring sketches. The actors take great care to portray a simple scenario on stage, before adding an unexpected twist to the situation to make it hilarious. Unique, quirky and original, the Hennessy and Friends sketches are ones to quickly fall in love with.

Hennessy and Friends started their run of festival shows on Friday, but have already seen both nights packed to the brim with eager spectators. Because it is a free show, we recommend getting down well before doors open to ensure a seat at this excellent performance. ‘Murmurs‘ is on at 19.30 at Cowgatehead, 65 Cowgate.
