Nautilus

Trygve Wakenshaw

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.

The Independent

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.

★★★★ Fest

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.

★★★★★ Edinblogger

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

★★★★ One4review

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
