Best known for their long association with BBC Radio’s Stop the Week, Instant Sunshine’s unique and original humorous songs, laden with self-parody, have delighted audiences at home and abroad for decades. As a musical comedy team they have been described as brightening up the dullest of days with their timeless entertainment.
They play regularly at festivals and theatres throughout the United Kingdom and have delighted audiences on their travels round the world to New York, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Bermuda. On their first appearance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, over 30 years ago, they were voted Hit of the Fringe and return regularly to this wonderful carnival to savour the delights and meet old friends, and continue to receive enthusiastic reviews
