Comedians are a dime a dozen in Edinburgh during the Fringe. There’s plenty of political satire about. And in recent years, there’s been something of a renaissance in puppetry. But The Great Puppet Horn is the only show combining all three of these genres. Jeremy Bidgood and Lewis Young combine their strikingly-designed cardboard cut-outs with photographic projections, drawings and songs to offer a genuinely original comic commentary on current events. Featuring polar bears and penguins, wind turbines, a cult of improvisational comedians and of course a handful of prominent political figures, Bidgood and Young weave several buoyant sketches together to create a very odd – and yet not entirely inaccurate – picture of modern day Britain.
