Description

It's Mr Bean meets The Shining! Don't be fooled – Jim and Barb are no ordinary elderly couple. Leave your preconceptions at the door and expect the unexpected. The Anniversary is a physical comedy house party from hell! From the creators of the multi award-winning Otto and Astrid – Die Roten Punkte comes a brand-new murderously funny comedy farce. Hold onto your hats for the most absurd and hilarious tailspin of a party like you've never seen before. 'They’re hilarious!' ***** (CBC.ca). 'Wild… high energy!' **** (Herald Sun). 'It’s a class act… intensely funny!' **** (Age).

Our first fringe show on Monday.....wow! Reminded me of Eric Sykes sketches. To act for an hour without speaking (except saying Babs n Jim!) shows a level of talent not often seen...anywhere. They're physical dexterity, facial expressions and use of complicated physical props will stay with me for some time. Well done that company!
P.S please move to Scotland......want to see more! RIP Snuffles!

Jim and Barb, you can't help but love them! Very funny show. Slapstick comedy delivered with perfect timing - absolutely brilliant!

Damn you frickin' Ozzies! I watched as an audience of sophisticates guffawed at the most slapstick and often dark setups...in spite of themselves. Turn your critical brain off and just go have a laugh. Great fun.

My first show of the day today and it did not disappoint! It was brilliant. So funny and so well done! Took me back to my childhood watching the likes of Mr Bean. Good old physical comedy. Can't beat it!

There are some real stand out moments of physical comedy, and Daniel Tobias and Clare Bartholomew carry out every routine with perfect comic timing.

The Anniversary is a slapstick comedy with very little dialogue and the physical comedy is executed to perfection.

The Anniversary had me laughing pretty much from start to finish. Those who relish clowning should give this a go.
