Damp Knight Comedy: Grand Theft Otter

Henry Travers Studio  |  15 – 16 April 2022

Comedy so good it’s almost a crime!

Outlawed from the river dwelling aquatic mammalian community for being “Too Damn Funny”, Damp Knight Comedy are on the run with their 10th comedy spectacular – Grand Theft Otter. And where better to bring it, than back here at The Maltings Theatre.

Comprising mainly of their signature brand of insane improvised comedy, paired with filmed and live sketches debuted at this show, Damp Knight Comedy take elements of popular improv TV shows (such as Mock the Week, Fast and Loose & Whose Line Is It Anyway?), add a little surreal Monty Python flavour and hit fast-forward for a night of unforgettable, high-octane comedy, entirely inspired by the audience’s suggestions.

Join the Damp Knights in their latest special at The Maltings; “Grand Theft Otter” as they invent and scramble their way through impossible situations, ridiculous games and even the odd inconceivable musical number all for your entertainment, knowing that they genuinely do not have a pre-approved script or storyline to fall back on.

Old favourites such as Forward/Reverse and New Choice will be on offer as well as the ever growing arsenal of Damp Knight originally created games.
It’s a night of hilarity for all who attend, or an opportunity to impress your friends with your bravery, by bringing them to a comedy evening and volunteering yourself for audience participation! (Audience Participation Not Mandatory).

Who Are Damp Knight Comedy?

Formed in 2015, creative comedy cronies ‘Damp Knight Comedy’ are a group of passionate funny peoples, performers and general ne’er-do-wells that know how to make audiences laugh but haven’t yet mastered writing a script. After many gigs round the North East and the South of Scotland, as well as several sell-out performances at The Maltings they are back with their quick wits, stage chemistry and lack of shame.
