Fringe REVIEW: Police Cops: The Musical - ★★★★★

Updated: May 31, 2023

USA, 1985: Rookie Police Cop Jimmy Johnson joined the force to protect and serve... But now Jimmy's in deep, partnered up with a renegade Police Cop and leaned on by a racist Chief. With guns loaded and safety catches off, Jimmy's on a freewheeling adventure from the mean streets of America to Mexico, where destiny awaits in the form of grizzled ex-Police Cop Juanita Gonzalez. Multi award-winning Police Cops are back and bigger than ever. Featuring an expanded ensemble and original songs, their unique physical comedy mayhem is supercharged for their most ambitious show yet.

Stewart - ★★★★★

"Once again Police Cops are the highlight of the Edinburgh Fringe. This time they spin their original story into a musical format with uproarious results. The new additions to the cast are fantastic and the humour as always is downright hilarious. I laughed all the way through, these guys have become a firm Mix Up Theatre favourite at the festival. Don't miss it!"
