One of the most hotly tipped sequels of the Edinburgh Fringe, Coach Coach 2: Coach Harder delivers a reboot filled with more recastings than Kevin Spacey’s 2018 filmography.

The show features enjoyable nods to the expectations laid out from being a sequel, dashed with plenty of pop culture references through both it’s production design (of which is outstanding – props to the venue crew) and extremely loose script, offering room for the improv we’ve all come to expect from Riches.

Although billed as Adam’s creation, it’s helped to come alive with an ensemble including Stevie Martin, Daniel Cook and Ben Target. I was skeptical to how this new cast would shape up against the original (which included David Elms and Liz Smith) but there’s no need to be.

Adam Riches delivers yet again, one of three shows he’s bringing to this year’s festival – if this is anything to go by, make sure you don’t miss his trio of productions!

Adam Riches Is Coach Coach 2: Coach Harder is one of the funnest shows at this year’s festival, the energy is infectious and you’ll come out grinning ear to ear. Is it cheesy? Yes. Is it a one of the best night’s you can have at the Fringe? For sure.

Adam Riches Is Coach Coach 2: Coach Harder plays on select nights at the Pleasance Dome. Tickets can be purchased here
