The Bean Spillers
Farting at a funeral. Calling your teacher ‘Mum’. Farting at your teacher’s funeral then calling the Vicar ‘Mum’! We’ve all heard some juicy gossip, but have you ever wondered if there’s more to the story?
Let’s face it, we all need a bit of light relief after the year we’ve had. That’s why Gigglemug Theatre set out to create a show celebrating something which unites us all: GOSSIP. The Bean Spillers (Sam Cochrane & Alex Prescot) are venturing out on a noble quest to find the silliest story each audience has to offer and turn it into a completely improvised musical extravaganza.
The Bean Spillers premiered at Brighton Fringe where the show was nominated for the Balkan/Otherplace Award, since then the production has toured to Ventnor Fringe, Camden Fringe, the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield, The Rondo Theatre, Bath, Chippenham Fringe, Leicester Comedy Festival, The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham, The North Wall, Oxford, The Peterhouse May Ball, Cambridge, The Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh Fringe & The Birmingham Improv Festival. The show has received the Offcomm Award for its monthly residency at The Hen & Chickens.
