“Meticulous musical clowning. Not simply multi-talented musicians performing a range of instruments, but also knock-about clowns, in a similar vein to Laurel and Hardy, Chaplin and Harold Lloyd. The show is fresh, fast-paced and family friendly.” – The Stage
“Deserves to find a wide audience… Children, in particular, will love them.” – The Scotsman
“The perfect blend of virtuosic musicianship, nostalgic sentiment, and lung-bursting physical comedy in the true slapstick tradition!” – The List
Flying violins! Speed skating ballerinas! Släpstick is an ode to the timeless comedy of Charlie Chaplin, Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and Laurel & Hardy – with a very modern twist.
Släpstick fly in from the Netherlands with a unique mix of live music and energetic physical comedy. With a flair for eccentricity and a hint of melancholy, the five world-class performers have mastered over 100 instruments between them. Släpstick is a perfect blend of dazzling musicianship, lung-bursting physical comedy and heartfelt nostalgia in the true ‘slapstick’ tradition.
