Without a doubt the most emotionally invested I've ever felt to a crab. The physical comedy and impressions were very impressive and well observed - I haven't seen anything else quite like it at the fringe. Well worth a visit. Definitely good for kids, but we went without kids and loved it too.

Truly an amazing show, i was laughing the whole time. The actors are super talented and they really have an amazing feeling of the audience.

A very clever performance. The facial expressions and mannerisms were spot on. An extremely funny different sort of show. Well worth it.
Best of luck to them both.

This was so funny and the kids loved it as well as the adults. It was a bit unexpected and unusual but the two performers were so good, particularly the amazing animal impersonations. Definitely recommend.

We watched Attenborough’s animals this afternoon with my two teenagers after a recommendation from a friend and it totally surpassed my expectations - fabulous mixture of mine, impressions and comedy - great show which I thoroughly recommend.

Richard Franks 8 days ago

Incredibly clever, very funny and seriously silly. Great physical comedy from two very talented performers. Fun for all ages, both kids and adults were laughing their heads off.

Loved this. It swings from laughter at the ingenious and incredible acting to genuine, heartfelt regret for how we're treating the planet. The portrayal of Eva had me in tears! Really enjoyable fun for anyone roughly 8 yrs and up.

This show was enjoyable for us as adults and omg the actors put in an insane level of energy and effort. I do think kids (who are old enough to have watched Attenborough) would LOVE this show
