After a successful run at The 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, comedy double act Thom Bee & Andrew Marsh want to bring their debut show “(No) Money in the Bank” to an even wider audience. As the title suggests, the show is exactly what happens when two, very poor adults, try and take on the world of professional wrestling. Newsplex said “(No) Money In The Banks highlights the weird and bizarre elements of the glorious sport of professional wrestling, but embraces with warmth and humour, and it is an essential watch to any wrestling fan.” and Screen Jabber called it “an absolute must for comedy and wrestling fans.”
(No) Money in the Bank is a show that combines character comedy, stand up comedy, and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the wrestling world. No rock is left unturned or rock bottomed as Thom and Andrew explore the good, the bad, and the downright weird aspects of sports entertainment, which they both love so dearly. There is even a special guest appearance from Balthazar Dark, a bitter, volatile wrestler who has somehow found himself on this show. (No) Money in the Bank promises a truly surreal use of “tag team comedy” and aims to sports entertain fans of wrestling. as it has been created and performed by two mega-fans. That said, there has been a deliberate effort to make the show just as enjoyable for those who haven’t seen a match since they were kids, or possibly not at all. (No) Money in the Bank is a love letter to the world of sports entertainment, but if you hate wrestling, you can still come and laugh at the things that Thom and Andrew find ridiculous about it.
Thom and Andrew previewed the show all over the country, including a four day run at Brighton Fringe, before showcasing the final product for the full month at Edinburgh Fringe. All to positive feedback and happy audiences.

“A great mix of stand up, improv and crowd participation. Please go see them and give them the love they deserve.”
“It draws comparison between real life and the world of wrestling, exploring business, alcoholism and even sexuality. Its energetic and a little niche but overall a very fun hour with plenty of laughs, even if you know nothing of wrestling.”
“Thoroughly enjoyable show that even non-wrestling fans would be able to relate to.
Great references, humour and audience participation! Well worth fitting into your schedule.”
“As a wrestling fan I absolutely loved it but even the non-fans in the crowd were having a great [time]! They found the balance between the two perfectly!”
