Twisted Loaf Present Stale Mate

2013 Funny Women Award winners Twisted Loaf are back in Edinburgh with their new show Stale Mate and if you like your comedy daft and dark then this is the show for you.

A year on and are Libby and Nina any the wiser? I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say no. In fact they are sillier. Nina seems a bit more daring but Libby now begins the show in a dishevelled state and seems to have developed a nasty habit. But that’s showbiz.

Stale Mate brings some new characters to Twisted Loaf’s repertoire, city boys, belly dancing class students and talking women among them.

Don’t worry though, the audience was clearly delighted to see the saga of David and Marge continue. Marge is all the more determined to seduce David and has taken some exotic inspiration.

This is a show full of Twisted Loaf’s trademark clowning with blood, sweat and tears.

And they did it all with their boobies out.


Twisted Loaf are at Just the Tonic at the Caves at 5.00pm from 23rd-29th August. For more information click here!
