Funny Bones

I wish I could have seen this show earlier in the Festival, and urged far more people to go and see it for themselves. This simple yet prop-heavy performance features mime, clowning, dance, juggling and magic – oft times botched for comic effect – presented by two extremely talented players who have been honing their considerable skills with street theatre displays all over the world. With routines involving the likes of bottled water, sticky tape, a musical broom and amazingly tall puppets, the result is an inventive and side-achingly funny show which is as much a joy for the adults as it is for the kids (even if they wrinkle their noses a bit at the more scatalogical content). Chris and K-Bow are a wonderful pairing; equally funny, equally endearing, equally fabulous.

Gilded Balloon, until 30 Aug.
