From the show:
Hot off the back of total sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe 2016, 2017, 2018 and Soho Theatre, London; multi award-winning company Police Cops bring you their latest comedy blockbuster: Badass Be Thy Name. Gritty northern town: 1999. A kitchen sink drama turns into a vampire-slaying horror epic. Complete with a 90s rave soundtrack, supercharged physical comedy and more vampires that you can shake a stake at.
See it if you like zaniness by three young guys who off non-stop action, costume changes, dancing and fast talking using props in a loose plot.
Don't see it if you are looking for a straight play or even a comedy - this is for a younger audience or those who relate to today's music and comedy.
See it if In the Club Hacienda, Satan must be taken down by a vampire slayer. "First rule of vampire slaying: Don't talk about Fight Club." Flubbery.
Don't see it if Thick Manchesterian accents come and go. No vampires! "I'm no babysitter,I was never here/I'm getting too old for this sheet" Cheeky Nudity.
Also "Punch if you love." Inventive properties usage.Giggity.
See it if You enjoy satires of pop culture. You enjoy improv-based storytelling. You like zany comedy. You want a lighter than air night out.
Don't see it if You dislike scripted shows w/room for improv. You don't like satire. You prefer big production values. You want something serious.
See it if Not a serious show, fast pace with quick changes. Slapstick comedy. Actors don't take themselves and have fun too.
Don't see it if Little bottom rear nudity. Not a serious story. Its reminder me of slapstick.
See it if You like satire and punny jokes and a cast that tries really hard and but doesn't take anything very seriously. Needs work but could be fun.
Don't see it if You want a well polished show. This is a bit of a mess and you kind of have to roll with it. You are looking for laugh out loud funny.
See it if understand the Police-Cop experience & forgive a lot, if U like stupid humor, and barebones theatre that seems 2 B more improv than script
Don't see it if expect them to do their trademark gratuitous removal of clothing, only bare "talking" asscheeks this time around, expect a finished product
See it if It’s slapstick. It’s funny! It’s Police 👮🏽 Cops 🚓! This is my 3rd installment that I’m seeing and I laugh every time. It’s light comedy
Don't see it if And entertainment for the evening. It’s worth the price of a small admission. It definitely has a niche audience. It’s improv, with some
See it if A few funny written lines many funny improvised lines see it if you like improvisation
Don't see it if You’re afraid of taking a chance at improvisations
See it if enjoy farces and meta-theater. Like creative bad staging and campy, over the top plays.
Don't see it if mind short plays, its only an hour, don't want constant gags and low brow humor. Mind some nudity or sacrilegious elements.
See it if You could use a one-hour distraction from the exhausting daily headline grabbing political mayhem. You are sure to get mooned into oblivion.
Don't see it if You frown upon silliness and improv comedy. You prefer to stay home and feel sorry for yourself for the total lack of a sense of humor.
See it if you hear that they have pulled their timing together and nailed down the sequences. Could be fun...
Don't see it if you're expecting crack showmanship.
See it if you like sketch comedy and improv, enjoyed the '90s, and don't mind that it's low budget and can go a little off the rails
Don't see it if you have high expectations, need a polished show and a good story
See it if You enjoyed the first two Police Cop shows, or just like good well executed comedy. Hilarious show.
Don't see it if You’re looking for big production value.
See it if Not as good as the original but still a blast, and especially fun if you happen to come from the UK. Well done boys, can't wait for the next
Don't see it if Seamless it ain't. But that's part of its charm. You can't help be taken in when the guys on stage are having such fun.
See it if You are a '90s kid and enjoy off-the-wall humor with intentionally low production values handled with aplomb.
Don't see it if You are looking for a deep, straight play; wacky self-referential humor doesn't appeal to you; you won't get '90s references.
