The Birdmann and Egg A Late Night Birdhouse

Enter an out-of-this-world experience! Direct from ten world tours comes the Most Original Comedy nominee of the Edinburgh Fringe, the Just for Laughs Best Comedy nominee at the Montreal Fringe and winner of Best Circus at Melbourne Fringe. A live action comedy featuring hip tracks, happening flicks and hilarious circus tricks. Fun can save the world!

A man like no man, the internationally infamous, award-winning, festival favourite with possibly the world's finest collection of comedy variety classic hits! Be wowed by incredible acts like climbing inside a giant balloon, interactive origami extravaganzas all with original music from the eclectic comedienne Egg of Japan. This delightfully absurd duo have played Glastonbury Music Festival to the Australian Circus Festival with sell-out shows and standing ovations. In the beautiful Melba Spiegeltent, fly to the future for a fantastic night!

'Sometimes it is easy to lose sight of what a festival is all about, but this show is reaffirming. A breathe of fresh air. The Birdmann is hilariously funny and technically brilliant. This show is possibly the cleverest, funniest and most well-crafted thing you will see this festival. Do go and see it! ★★★★★' MLB
