A 75 minute tour-de-force of high-octane mime comedy.
Nautilus is the widely lauded follow-up to cult sell-out physical comedies Kraken (London International Mime Festival ’15) and Squidboy.
Mad, risqué and uniquely eccentric, this is award-winning and internationally acclaimed idiot Trygve Wakenshaw’s Bristol debut.

Nominated: Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award, 2015
Reminiscent of the young Jim Carrey…rubber-faced, loose-limbed and wondrously expressive.
So magical, so delightfully playful. Wakenshaw leaves his audience slack-jawed with admiration.
★★★★ The Scotsman
The kind of funny you get when not just the rug but the whole floor and foundations are pulled right out from under you.
★★★★ The Guardian
Trygve is a Loony Toons creation made flesh…you can’t help but be carried away by the pure joy of his madcap landscapes.
Astonishing, original, witty and engrossing.
★★★★★ The Arts Desk
Incredibly clever, yet entirely stupid comedy…one of the most entertaining shows I’ve ever seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
A living cartoon…genuinely hilarious… an incredibly captivating night of comedy.
★★★★★ The Public Reviews
Wonderfully creative in ways that other people who have moved in similar territory have not even begun to explore.
★★★★★ Edinburgh Guide
It’s impossible to watch without bated breath to see where it’s going next…this is an excellent show
Expertly-performed and largely-silent…the New Zealander continues to hit the physical comedy jackpot.
★★★★ The List
A master of his art…the physical performance is enough to convert anybody to the art of clowning
★★★★ The Skinny
Very funny… this is expert stuff”
★★★★ The Mirror
