"a riot of colour, with innumerable changes of ridiculous sub-clown costumes throughout ... and the array of instruments is colossal ... but what impresses most is the sheer energy, skill and versatility of the musicianship – driving the show along to its faster and faster, and dafter and dafter climax. Lots of fun." John Christopher Wood (Rondo Theatre, Bath Comedy Festival, April 2017)
