Description

Twonkey’s 10th show is about grotesque cake decorating shop in the Dordogne that has been secretly making fake weather since 1982. Mr Twonkey says, 'Last week I knocked on the door licking my lips in anticipation. The shopkeeper opened the door, a tiny woman who was all baggy eyes with a hard miserable face and fast little legs. I had made a horrible mistake?' 'He creates wonderlands of weird' **** (Scotsman). 'Mind-bending fables' **** (Times). 'An operatic imagination' **** (BeyondTheJoke.co.uk). 'A one-man cornucopia of the bizarre' **** (FringeGuru.co.uk). Winner: Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality.

This show was great fun and I had a good laugh throughout. Like many people at the fringe I'm drawn to alternative comics who offer something completely different to the norm and Twonkey is in a wonderfully weird world of his own. If you're in any doubt, take it from me, go! You'll love it.

Time to enter the Twonkeyverse again. Climb aboard his Weird but Wonderful Waltzer and away we go… up and down and roundabout for a bit, but then he takes hold of your car and spins and you are off, pinned to the wall by a centrifuge of silliness. ...

It’s Twonkey’s tenth year on the Fringe and he’s here to celebrate with a show that may or may not be the most baffling yet. For those who have never experienced the surreal world or Mr. Twonkey, it’s worth mentioning that the reviews can often be as confusing as the...

The Skinny (3/5 stars) 103 days ago

Bumbling about in his striped rainbow coloured T-shirt, Twonkey does the least he can to explain what to expect of his show before getting stuck into a variety of characters, songs and meandering stories over the course of the hour. It’s a strange trip where very little has any apparent...
