King Herod, famed for his Massacre of the Innocents, is now the face of a self-development pyramid scheme. In this chaotic drag-clown fiasco, Roman subjects transform into modern clients in an interactive group therapy session. Expect frivolity, shock and redemption in a show which asks: Who can we trust? What are eggs? Why are you crying? Brought to you by Comedy Central-endorsed clown, Riss Obolensky. ‘Side-splitting laughs’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Boundless energy' ***** (LondonTheatre1.com). 'Raging lesbian' ***** (DIVA Magazine). 'That was the weirdest and best thing I've ever seen' (Lost Cabaret Bristol).
