Told by an Idiot
Get Happy

The Pit

 Sold out

Enter a world of artfully controlled chaos. 
There’s a mysterious bag that drops from a height. 
Shoes have magical powers. 
And the strangest egg sandwich is made in front of your eyes. 

Physical comedy, live music, acrobatics, silly dancing and audience interaction all feature in this 'madcap little gem' (Time Out) - a Christmas show for kids and adults of all ages. Told by an Idiot has looked to the work of Charlie Chaplin, Dr Seuss and Pina Bausch to fashion an unexpected variety performance, bursting with quirky playfulness and off-the-wall humour.

Get Happy, which had us laughing out loud two years ago, is back with exciting new material for 2015.
