Love & Rabbits (The Underground Clown Club)

By | Published on Friday 15 August 2014

Love & Rabbits is a witty and wonderful 45 minute long free fringe show, performed by Underground Clown Club duo Katie Overstall and Andrew Skipper. It’s an intimate set, fuelled by good will for the performers, who create a warm atmosphere that is very welcoming and enjoyable. The duo’s material champions the magic and wonder of words, having a playful and charming quality not too dissimilar to ‘Dr. Seuss’. Themes of nostalgia and a fondness for childhood curiosity make for an inoffensive piece that would best appeal to a family crowd – it is not so much that the two fall short of making any commentary on contemporary issues, rather, they turn there, and run in the opposite direction.

Electric Circus Lizard Lounge, until 15 Aug.
