To be honest, I’m not sure why we review CRUMBS. The local improv outfit doesn’t need the press. They’ll sell out all their shows anyway, they have the hippest, best-looking audience at the Fringe, and there’s beer at their venue.

Plus, they’re reliable. We could probably cut ’n’ paste our review of their King’s Head show from the 2008 Fringe, and nobody would know the difference, because it’s still just as hilarious, and just as made-up-on-the-spot. In fact, let’s try that right now:

"After 11 years together CRUMBS are indeed masters of long-form improv... their audiences know and love them. And DJ Hunnicutt has a knack for finding the best tunes to fit a scene."

See? A still-relevant synopsis of a perennially funny show. Oh, and they have a video screen this year. It’s pretty cool.

— Melissa Martin
 

From the official Fringe program:

Take the laid-back freestyle duo show that CRUMBS is known for and then add the seamless musical soundtrack of one of the most talented djs in the world and you get CRUMBS to the power of awesome.
