The clock is ticking and your team are losing… The ball is in your hands… Will you take the shot, the Hail Mary that could win or lose you the game?

After a host of critically acclaimed one-man shows that earned him the reputation as the ‘ballsiest audience-interactor on the Fringe’ (Daily Telegraph), 2011 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner Adam Riches arrives back in London with his sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe show Coach Coach, making good on the promise he made to lasso his audience into a bold, new direction.

Coach Coach tells the story of the ultimate High School Sports Coach desperately trying to steer his team to glory in the final of the Yakult Cup. Featuring a formidable cast that is a ‘chocolate box of young comedy talent’ (The Times).

‘You realise the show (and indeed Riches’ career) has all been building up to the most profound piece of audience participation he has ever created.’
