Description

We all have to work. Awk longs for a better life outside the shackles of mediocrity, but something keeps holding him back. Awk's on the clock, and he doesn’t have long until his time is up. All Awk wants is to impress you and to be loved. He's quite happy if you laugh at him, not with him, as long as he gets the attention he desperately craves. So come and join Awk as he returns for a second year of Edinburgh Fringe adventures. He may even sing you a little song to say thank you!

I ended up seeing two not-dissimilar clown shows in the same day and this one really stood out. Awk is immediately likeable, his childlike naivety and sense of glee is infectious and uplifting.

Beyond that this show is also a delightfully irreverent investigation of the title, with the gentlest audience participation I've ever encountered!

How can a man say so much without saying anything? For Awk, work is a struggle, but the beauty of life beyond is within reach.
Tearjerking and memorable, this show will not soon be forgotten. See it before it sells out.

A very nice relaxing and fun clown show that can be enjoyed by all ages.
