Monkey Barrel Comedy (MB3)
CLOWNTS is a once-in-a-lifetime royal rumble, as three jesters (critically-acclaimed idiots Viggo Venn, Julia Masli and Sami Abu Wardeh) compete to please the King. Fringe favourite John-Luke Roberts presides over this bizarre battle royale where only one clown can survive.
Praise for the combatants:
★★★★ The List "quite unlike anything else you'll see"
★★★★ Fest Mag "all possibilities exist and anything can happen."
★★★★ (Skinny) 'Masli’s set pieces hit every beat, leaving the audience in stitches'
★★★★ (List) 'Pure absurdist silliness, a chance to lose yourself'
SAMI ABU WARDEH
★★★★ 1/2 (ReviewsHub) "no-one can take their eyes off him."
Praise for the King: JOHN-LUKE ROBERTS
★★★★ (The Guardian) "A one-man finger in the dyke against the blandification of comedy"
★★★★ (The Times
★★★★ (The Telegraph)
