Review of GIG.MOUTH

Overall rating: 4 Verified review

A unique and fun venue, friendly staff, good prices (on soft drinks). Could have done with a few more people to create more atmosphere and the sound seemed to go a bit out of synch during the Rhemedies set but overall a great night out, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Review of The Schlocky Horror Improv Show

Overall rating: 5 Verified review

Schlocky Horror Improv Show is a roll on the floor funny evening. It's the best improv I've seen anywhere, including with big improv touring companies. The Banshee Labyrinth is worth the visit on its own, but the excellent comedy show really blew the group I took away. We did think we were going to see an improv version of "Rocky Horror Picture Show," but this is not the case. This is long form improv around horror themes. On this night they created a B-movie before our eyes. We're from Canada, and there was over 20 of us, and they added in lots of great jokes about Canada on the fly. Very friendly cast and crew, too, who chatted with the students after the show. Highly recommended!!!

The Banshee Labyrinth venue information

Our venue proves why Edinburgh really is a Jekyll & Hyde city! Half of the club was once part of the infamous “underground Vaults” -once the haunt of criminals, thieves and the very unsavoury. It was in these former slums that many poor and innocent met a very grisly end! Ironically right next door, the front of the club; was once home to one of the richest men in Edinburgh, Lord Nicol Edwards. Edwards was Lord Provost of Edinburgh during the reign of King James VI/I of Scotland & England, and was reputedly a vile man – not only did he abuse his own wife horribly, but he is said to have had a basement dungeon beneath his house in which he at times personally tortured suspected witches before trial.

Now, along with many other spirits, ‘The Banshee’ haunts this Labyrinth. When refurbishing the venue a group of workmen believed they all heard a terrifying scream. A few hours later, one of the workmen received a phone call informing him that a family member had passed away.

Wherever you choose to sit back, relax and enjoy your drink, remember to be very careful. Many have placed their drink down simply to watch it slide straight off the table and smash against a wall as if thrown by an unseen force!
