Idiot actor Garry Starr demonstrates pretty much every form of performance in this hour - from Shakespeare to mime. Damien Warren-Smith undertakes some impressive physically-demanding clowning to get big laughs, roping in willing audience members along the way. You'll have seen everything by the end. Do you know Noh? If no, go.


Disgraced actor Garry Starr is going it alone. Following his dismissal from the Royal Shakespeare Company due to "artistic differences", he is determined to defy his critics by performing every single genre of theatre in under 60 minutes, thus saving the performing arts from their inevitable extinction. A hilarious new physical comedy about overambition and underachievement from Damien Warren-Smith and director Cal McCrystal. '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' ***** (GlamAdelaide.com.au). **** (Herald Sun).
