Grumpy Pants


A show that is designed to entertain parents alongside kids with a mix of perfectly crafted juggling routines, clowning, physical comedy and fork throwing! Yes forks!!

Grumpy Pants invites the audience into an eccentric and intimate world, where everyday objects such as suitcases, glasses of water and frisbees are bought to life in experimental juggling routines. A bizarre and off beat character Grumpy Pants communicates through his expressive rubber skin, words and sounds and the fourth wall is broken from beginning to end, as the audience, both children and adults, are encouraged to be part of the show from the moment they enter.

Grumpy Pants finishes with a highly skilled fork throwing finale act that brings delight to everyone in the audience.!
