Jeans are a charismatic quartet of sketch-com vets whose members have performed with a murderer's row of respected troupes, including The Sketchersons, Flirty Boys and Junkyard Dukes. Their real-life friendships bring an exuberant energy to shows, and the fun they have onstage is infectious. Raised by television into the fine upstanding adults they are today, they're a refreshingly optimistic crew who see the world through rose-coloured instagram filters. Sometimes earnest, often ridiculous, quick to the punch and full of beans, Jeans are -- bottom line -- loads and loads of FUN.
Originally designed for cowboys and miners, Jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture. Jeans were a common fashion item in the 1960s hippie subculture and they continued to be popular in the 1970s and 1980s youth subcultures of punk rock and heavy metal. Today, Jeans remain a popular fashion item and come in various fits. Starring Ali Wylie, Andy Auld, Alessandra Vite and Phil Moorhead.
