You’re so vain you probably think this show is about you. But it’s actually about Figs in Wigs – the lowbrow answer to avant-garde. Show Off nosedives deep into our shallow digital existence, goggling at how social media has bred a new form of narcissism.

Masquerading as a variety show this desperately glitzy number continually reinvents itself to satisfy even the most depleted of attention spans.

In a selfie-obsessed effort to tick every box five performers reintroduce themselves as comedians, dancers, visual artists, musicians and circus entertainers. After all, nowadays one trick ponies rarely make the cut.

‘Figs in Wigs prove that silly and whiplash smart go hand in hand. Terrific fun.’
