The Kagools first full-length show, Kagoolio, enjoyed successful runs at Leicester Comedy Festival, Buxton Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Bath Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, Fringe World (Perth), Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Anywhere Festival (Brisbane); it received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. The show is an enchanting, bold, high-energy experience.
The Kagools second full-length show, Tutti, won three awards; Best Comedy Show - Amused Moose Award, Edinburgh Fringe 2017, Best Comedy Show - Weekly Award, Adelaide Fringe 2017, Best Comedy Show - Buxton Fringe 2016. Tutti was a natural development from the first show only with bigger tricks, higher flicks and a unicorn.
The Kagools third full-length show, Kula, was cooler than a cool thing. It previewed at Adelaide Fringe in March 2018. The show then went on to tour at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Singapore, Vietnam and finished at Edinburgh Fringe. Kula was a joyous icy ride, that included Tina Turner dances, Sinclair C5s and a cameo with a man from Hull called Howard.
