London Sketchfest: Casual Violence – House of Nostril
May 3, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm$13
Expect award-winning tales of horror and heartbreak from Casual Violence, a five-man comedy troupe bewitched by a penchant for the macabre and a delight in despair. They bring to life weird, bleak and off-kilter sketch tragicomedy, uniquely designed to break your heart and split your sides at the same time. Delightfully odd, Casual Violence are perfect at forming addictive, lively and utterly ridiculous characters for sketch comedy that’s bleak, weird, sinister and silly. Returning to London SketchFest for the second time, they will be raising the game with a theatrical feast that promises to be darker and stranger than we’ve ever seen. This appearance follows their sell-out run at the Soho Theatre, join the double Malcolm Hardee Award nominated comedy group for House of Nostril – a critically acclaimed nightmare blend of sketch comedy, live music and pure evil. Telling the bizarre tale of the Nostril family and the various inhabitants of their large, Victorian mansion, expect voodoo dolls, chimney sweeps, dyslexia goblins and terrible parents together in the midst of a crazy scheme.
