Our next show is a mixture of comedy and circus – strictly for adults, and it’s Colossal’s Laser Kiwi, at Assembly George Square Gardens, Piccolo, at 22:30 on Wednesday 21st. Let’s take a look at the blurb: “New Zealand’s favourite surreal sketch circus troupe bring their smash hit to Edinburgh. A wonderfully bizarre and thoroughly entertaining masterpiece, you will never predict what’s coming next! After sell-out shows across Australia and Canada, this unique style of comedy is set to shake up the UK. This show is innovative… and refreshingly unpretentious. ‘Fall-down funny, and absolutely top shelf’ ***** (Advertiser, Adelaide). ‘Hilarious and impressive in equal measure’ ***** (TheUpsideNews.com). Winner of Best Circus and Physical Theatre at Adelaide Weekly Fringe Awards 2019.”
Mrs Chrisparkle isn’t always in the mood for something circusey so I hope this isn’t too traditional big-top – I kinda doubt it is, on this late at night! Check back shortly before midnight to see how we enjoyed it. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.
Not sure I’ve ever seen a show quite like this! A range of truly impressive circus/acrobatic acts mixed with surreal comedy mini-sketches. Three very likeable and talented performers make the evening go with a swing! I was brought up on stage to play along with the “Perfect Match” act at the end – hope I didn’t ruin it for everyone. Great fun!
