Polenta and Sage Take to the Stage

Polenta and Sage Take to the Stage is a fusion of character stand-up and improv comedy with audience participation. We will delve into the worlds of Polenta and Sage, from hilarious sketches such as “when was the last time you cried,” to erratic quick-change dance sections to our very own theme tune. Our content is wacky, bizarre, and semi-improvised, but with clean language and a rule to never “punch down” in our comedy, we believe that this is something that the whole family (as long as they’re quirky enough) can laugh along to. Previously known for vlogging about yoghurts, Polenta and Sage are excited to immerse you in a world of strange fairy-tales, songs, stories and games. Our number one priority is to ensure that you leave feeling like you aren’t quite sure what just happened, but you know that you definitely enjoyed it.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 9, 2019   Squirrel Comedy

This show is only on for five nights, and it’s away from the main venues (take the 23 or 27 bus to Tollcross), but it is well worth making the trip to see this perky pair telling us all about their lives, bedtime routines and dreams. Polenta and Sage wear brightly patterned pyjamas and nightgowns and have some entertaining props (including a very special robot). There are some very creepy yet upbeat songs and being very much on brand, we all get to have some yoghurt (Yum!).

Polenta & Sage were confident throughout the show in both their wonderful scripted material and clever ad libs using some audience suggestions. They had a number of well placed props which worked well until they found that one of their bags had a hole in it and was empty (or was that part of the show?). I had a ball and felt this sterling surrealism deserves a longer run near the centre of the Fringe action.

The audience were very vocal in their appreciation and I can only forsee big things in the future of these two young ladies. Part of the Free Fringe, so remember to bring a fiver to support this talented duo. Click Here For Article
