Description

New Zealand's favourite surreal sketch circus troupe bring their smash hit to Edinburgh. A wonderfully bizarre and thoroughly entertaining masterpiece, you will never predict what's coming next! After sell-out shows across Australia and Canada, this unique style of comedy is set to shake up the UK. This show is innovative... and refreshingly unpretentious. 'Fall-down funny, and absolutely top shelf' ***** (Advertiser, Adelaide). 'Hilarious and impressive in equal measure' ***** (TheUpsideNews.com). Winner of Best Circus and Physical Theatre at Adelaide Weekly Fringe Awards 2019.

I didn't really know what happened or could find the words to describe this show, except that it was a load of naughty creativity and fun. The three artists were all extremely lovable and easily formed a rapport with the audience. However I did wish the girl wouldn't get tummy troubles from eating so many candies from the floor!

Seen Friday 9th August. The trio came across very well, were likable and had a strong stage presence. A mix of sketch comedy with some caberet style acts. The caberet acts were probably more consistently entertaining than the comedy, some of them were fantastic. The comedy was still good but, as can be the case in sketch comedy, a few of the sketches didn't work for me. Still, a really enjoyable evening and glad that I went to see it. 8/10.

I loved this show! It was playful, absurd, hilarious, imaginative, intelligent… so fresh!
The performers were a super talented and entertaining team.
Gawd, this seems like faint praise for a trio who haphazardly/skilfully built audience anticipation and had me crying with laughter at feats I don't want to reveal
… aside from saying that in several contexts since (and most particularly to the delight of toddlers!) I've found myself speaking like and alien, rasping, 'nom…nom… nom – don't waste it!'

We laughed and loved this very fun and funny show by three brilliant and talented kiwis. It was inventive, very creative and fun... I wish it was two hours longer. Bravo.

Absolutely phenomenal show! Picked it randomly because it looked odd and interesting and the performance was hilarious, spectacular and blew us away. Money well spent and hopefully they return next year with more!

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 90 days ago

Perhaps the most admirable aspect of this show is the trio’s ability to stay calm when things go slightly sideways. With so many ambitious stunts, it’s not surprising that some don’t pan out as planned, but Laser Kiwi know how to strike the balance between persevering with a trick and...

The Skinny (4/5 stars) 97 days ago

Taking their name from an internet-famous and unused New Zealand flag suggestion, Laser Kiwi are the fresh faces of the sketch circus genre. It's not a booming genre but they have firmly planted their weird laser-shooting bird-themed flag on top. The three performers are a talented bunch, both in comedic...

This hilariously bonkers New Zealand trio had us at ‘referendum’. No mention of Brexit, however. In 2015, citizens of New Zealand were asked to design and vote on an official flag for their nation. Sadly, the Laser Kiwi design by James Gray did not win. But that did not stop it becoming an inspirational symbol of taking crazy ideas to extremes and sharing serious joy in dedicated nonsense.
