Frenzied, silly and silent comedy from cabaret clown Jack Stark. 

Dinosaurs. Romance. Ferrero Rocher. Shakespeare. An hour of ridiculous escapism about procrastination – with an awesome soundtrack. But what’s it all actually about? That’s TBC. 

Having trained with masters of clowning such as Gaulier and de Castro, Jack Stark (and his alter ego Kiki Lovechild) has toured variety circuits for the last 16 years. This is his sixth theatre clown show, after a string of four and five star reviews on previous tours. 

“He displayed a virtuoso masterclass in physical comedy. There are a lot of clown or physical theatre acts in cabaret these days that are not completely thought through but his antics rise far above the usual fare.” This is Cabaret

“a wonderful clown that smacks of the black and white films of old. His physicality is simple and fluid and his enjoyment of what he does shines through brightly.” The Metropolist

“He fills us all with wonder, laughter and love. His performance is always touching, always funny and somehow more beautiful than a sunrise, a sunset or an enchanted forest. His is a unique work of art.” Fringe Review
