All-American Snack Attack

America has given many great inventions to the world: electricity, the telephone, and Flamin' Hot Cheetos. American food scientists are working around the clock to make the craziest, most decadent snacks the world has ever seen. Have you ever wanted to eat Cotton Candy, but also Cap'n Crunch, but don't know how to decide which to eat? Now with Cotton Candy Cap'n Crunch, you don't have to.

Mark Henely and Ben Miller are two American comics who are coming to Edinburgh to be your tour guide through the cutting edge world of American snack foods. Each show, Mark and Ben will be introducing a different American snack to the audience during this stand-up showcase. Come out, try a snack, and hear what a rotating line-up of local comics from the Fringe think about these snacks as well. Part gut-busting laughs, part gut-filling snacks, this show will leave you fully satisfied.

But why Mark and Ben? Mark is a former fatty who used to drink Mountain Dew and crush Pop-Tarts on the regular. For years, he has been forcing the legendarily skinny Ben Miller to try Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and all sorts of fattening foods that he would never think to try himself. Ben was never allowed to drink soda growing up, but instead was forced to drink two glasses of milk every day. Is Mark opening Ben's horizons or ruining his pure, virgin mouth?
