Dates, Times and Prices


Glasgow's collective of clowns, comedians and creatures of calamity come together to take you on their sell-out tour of pure imagination around the moon and back. Immerse yourself in a world of kazoo-toting janitors, banana cannibalism, backwards burlesque and Henry Hoover with better chat than your cousin Fred. The Shiitake team will hold your hand as you journey through wild adventures to the irreverent and absurd corners of their minds. With help from a host of rogues, vagrants and weirdos, get ready to laugh, cry and party like it's your Aunt Brenda's retirement.
