  1. There’s a lot of both hit and miss shows at the fringe, this is definitely one of the hits! Full of funny songs and impressive stunts, go see this show for an hour of amazing entertainment!

  2. If you only see one show at Fringe this year, this is a good choice.
    Amazing acrobatics, very funny, and if you see it tonight, it’s half-price!
    They came all the way from New Zealand!

  3. Sly jokes, good humour, and circus acts come together for a great hour of entertainment worth well more than the 12$ asked.

    I particularly loved the way they wove their audience into the show, giving us a glimpse into how much they truly love performing for new audiences.

    Couldn’t have asked for a more engaging show – don’t miss it!

  4. Absolutely lovely show. Funny, talented, and a little cheeky. A great time! Would recommend.
