This wonderful comedy show explores all those moments in life when we are On the Edge! Falling in love, leaving home, getting a job, bungee jumping, you name it, this show explores it!
Essentially a comedy - with touching moments in it - On the Edge! garnered 5 star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival and received a standing ovation on its last night. Since then, it has been seen at over 300 venues across the UK and had sell out performances all over the world.
Created and starring Kevin Tomlinson (winner of the Sunday Times Playwright Award) and Abi Hood (ITV's The Bill), KEPOW! are now considered one of the UK's leading touring theatre companies (and one of the funniest).
American company Warner Bros have recently bought the internet rights to On the Edge and the BBC are now looking at turning it into a TV show. Alongside his Kepow work, Kevin has also performed with the cast of Whose Line is It Anyway? and Hollywood actor Jonathan Pryce at London's Hackney Empire in a show raising money for charity.
