In the mountains of North East Tasmania lurks one of the world's most truly idiotic clown troupes, Circus Horrificus. Samora Squid and Bridget Bridge are renowned for their extreme slapstick and stunt-based physical comedy skits that truly test thie durability of this unique pair of twits' bodies.
It's A Western is a wild ride of cirucs and extreme physical comedy performance, set in a bizarre, anarchic cartoon-esque world, filled with slapstick, traditional sideshow stunts and an energetic, quirky soundtrack. This is Mad Max meets Ren and Stimpy – where what should kill only drives the protagonists further into chaos.
Bridget Bridge and Samora Squid are living cartoon characters – seemingly impossible feats (including explosions to clear up Squid's itch, blades, needles and broken glass) happen constantly and both walk away unscathed.
Circus Horrificus have played all kinds of events, from rock concerts to weddings and from full-scale theatre tours to corporate events. The result is always the same – a perfect balance of laughter and screaming!
