As seen and heard on
Notflix is a totally improvised comedy musical based on an audience suggestion of a favourite movie, then using the location, key scenes and characters as a jumping off point to create a brand new narrative. All scenes, songs and vocals are improvised spontaneously by the cast and a live band with no preparation or planning. It's improv, so every show is different; but what remains the same is a joy-filled, high camp, musical celebration of everything you wish a movie could be.
As demonstration of its underground, (almost) overnight success Notflix has received widespread critical acclaim, including; Award wining, five star, total sell out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 - 2019 in the Gilded Balloon's flagship venue, the Debating Hall. Award winning total sell out runs at The Vaults Festival 2017 and 2018. Total sell out run at The Brighton Fringe 2017 and 2018. Recommended as Pick of the Fringe in the Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, Marie Claire and Elle Magazine. Semi finalists in the Musical Comedy awards and the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year. As seen on Sky News, STV and as House Band on Radio 5 Live.
