'SIDESPLITTINGLY FUNNY PHYSICAL COMEDY'
The polar ice caps are melting! Soon penguins will have nowhere to live. Having already saved pretty much everything else, Garry Starr is now taking it upon himself to single-handedly save our flightless, feathered friends from extinction by performing every Penguin Classic novel ever written. In an hour. Mostly naked (but with flippers).
An overzealous idiot attempts to perform all of Greek Mythology in order to save his Hellenic homeland from economic ruin.
Never before has Medusa been looser,
Achilles more sillies,
or Uranus so heinous.
Having single handedly saved the performing arts with his multi-award-winning debut show, comic wunderkind Garry Starr returns with another anarchic masterclass not to be mythed.

Disgraced actor Garry Starr defies his critics by performing every style of theatre imaginable, thus saving the performing arts from extinction. Starr tears through genres with little regard for personal safety and even less regard for art.
Nothing is sacred during this ‘masterclass in mockery’ (London Evening Standard). From Classical to Physical Theatre, Burlesque to Butoh, Melodrama to Mask; even Cirque Nouveau and contemporary ‘Euro Theatre’ get the Garry Starr treatment.
Directed by Cal McCrystal (The Mighty Boosh, Spymonkey, Paddington 1 & 2)
'An anarchic play-date with a six-foot-two toddler with a mop of fuzzy hair, no inhibitions and far too much raspberry cordial on board. It’s an exhilarating feeling'
‘From now on, any one-man comedy show I watch will be measured against the Garry Starr bar, and believe me that bar is now incredibly high’
New Zealand Herald
‘Uproariously funny...a superb, accessible clown’
‘A drama masterclass, leading us from clownish chaos to feats of comic genius.’
London Evening Standard
‘Hilarious…Starr’s comic sensibility has broad appeal’
