The Nutty Professor And His Amazing Magic Bubble Show

The Nutty Professor

One bubble man has pretty much dominated the Edinburgh bubble scene over the last few years, so it was a great surprise to see a couple more bubble shows gracing the bubble – I mean, children’s – section of the programme this year. It has to be said that the Nutty Professor doesn’t exactly scale the heights of the greatest technical bubble wizardry, but on the other hand, this friendly, somewhat pantomimic show (there’s quite a bit of slapstickery and the professor’s assistant is called Miss Squeaky Bottom) is possibly a better option for younger/pre-school children than other, slicker, more scientifically approached bubble shows (yes, you know who I’m talking about). Everyone had a good time at this performance, and the little ones got happily involved with the proceedings.

theSpace @ Surgeon’s Hall, until 29 Aug.
