Planet Caramel: Rotations in Flavour Space – Edinburgh Fringe 2018

Planet Caramel are a high concept, high octane sketch trio from Edinburgh, whose brand of comedy – like the caramel wafer you’ll get for free just for coming to see them – is short and sweet.

Planet Caramel are Alex HarwoodDavid Blair and Richard Duffy, three left-field offshoots from The Edinburgh Revue. Having been involved in the writing, performing and directing of every single one of the Revue’s Fringe shows since 2011, they formed Planet Caramel in 2014.

This is their fourth year at the Edinburgh Fringe following on from the success of Wafer Biscuit in 2015, A Taste of Planet Caramel in 2016 and Hot, Sexy, Kind and Desperate in 2017. Rotations in Flavour Space promises to be a light-speed sketch comedy experience like no other, showcasing the very best this group has to offer.

This year the trio have found success having some of their work showcased as part of BBC Alba’s new sketch show FUNC as well as providing material for Measuring Humanity, an international research project in conjunction with The University of Edinburgh.

Planet Caramel are currently Scotland’s only regularly gigging sketch group, becoming regulars at The Stand andMonkey Barrel comedy clubs as well as taking on Glasgow Comedy Festival and Brighton Fringe each year.

In previous years they hosted Edinburgh’s only sketch and character comedy night, Planet Caramel’s Hot Bedperforming alongside the likes of Norris and Parker and Twins.

Founded on the maxim ‘no sketches over a minute’, their style has since grown to encompass bigger characters, musical numbers and dance routines. While sketches and characters flow into each other, brief bursts of daftness, surprise and fun are still the bread and butter of this trio.

Come and see one of the best new up and coming sketch acts on the Fringe.
