Ramshackle is an old school detective – a veteran who does what needs to be done to get the right man behind bars.Kitsch is new on the team – a wide-eyed hipster who is as equally excited about the job as being distracted by puppies wearing shiny collars.

The lovechild of Starsky & Hutch and The Mighty Boosh, Ramshackle & Kitsch is a manic comedy based on audience suggestions and the finest of buddy cop traditions.

Nominated for Best Comedy at Fringe World 2017 (Perth, Australia).

From the teams that bring you multi award nominated The Ballad of Frank Allen and The Man and The Moon, and perennial Australian impro comedy favourites The Big HOO-HAA!, this New Zealand Fringe Festival, come see their crime thriller exploits unfold as Ramshackle & Kitsch work to keep this town safe from whatever capers are threatening us that night.
