The Amazing Bubble Man (Louis Pearl)

By | Published on Friday 22 August 2014

Louis Pearl, aka The Amazing Bubble Man, has been appearing at the Festival for many years now, and these days can command a large audience in a sizeable venue. The last time I saw him was at one of the C venues, in a smaller room, with a smaller crowd; it’s breaking the rules of a ThreeWeeks review somewhat to labour on venue issues, but have to say it: the bigger venue means it’s harder to see the smaller and more intricate creations when you are sitting at the back. That said, I am middle-agey (argh) with failing eyesight; my daughter, sitting next to me, could probably see it all. Plus, it’s still utterly fabulous to see all the big bubbles, the clever bubbles, and the you-can’t-believe-he-just-did-that bubbles. Super.

The Assembly Rooms, until 24 Aug.
