Comedy fun in Docklands

01 Apr 2015

Comedy fun in Docklands Image

By Louis Blake

Docklands gets giggly, silly and just a little bit crazy during the comedy festival’s at the Wonderland Spiegeltent.

A variety of acts for all tastes and interests will be on show during the comedic festivities from March 25 to April 19.

The League of Sideshow Superstars rock into town for one night only on April 11. Featuring a motley crew of sideshow talent, led by the one and only Shep Huntley, the League of Sideshow Superstars promises to shock, amaze and inspire.

The “League” formed in 2000 and have since honed their craft of slapstick, acrobatics and physical stunts. This night of the seemingly impossible also features the talents of Aerial Manx.

Aerial is one of the only men in the world who can perform acrobatic sword swallowing and was the first sword swallower in the world to swallow two 2000-volt neon tubes simultaneously.

The League also features Samora Squid who is one of the world’s tallest contortionists and has been described as defying medical science.

Audiences are encouraged to be brave and to challenge themselves for a truly unforgettable night of performance.

Shep Huntly returns to the Spiegeltent over the April school holidays with a family-focused show of an entirely different nature. The Big Bubble Show comes to Docklands and promises to be fun for the whole tribe.

The young and the young at heart will be amazed by what The Big Bubble Show can do with the humble old bubble. The show features bubbles inside bubbles, square bubbles, smoke bubbles, explode-a-bubbles and, for one lucky child, even the chance to become the incredible human bubble.    

The fun continues when Canadian Marty Putz crash-lands with his cheeky and charming show Putzing Around.  Be prepared for lots of audience participation, crazy gizmos and marshmallow fights in his manic performance that will surely have you gasping for breath and cheering for more.

Be warned however, over his run from March 28 to April 12, Marty will have you acting like a 10-year-old.

If death defying jumps and flips are more your style, then maybe the acrobatic show Elixir may be up your alley. Featuring the incredible talent of acrobats and choreographers Cal Harris and Thomas Gorham, Elixir is the story of a group of scientists’ attempts to create the elixir of life.

The show combines circus skills, live music, wild projections and laughs in a performance that is sure to thrill all those lucky enough to see it.
