Lily Fish Jofus and the Plank

Winner Best Physical Theatre Fringe at the Edge, 2020

Melbourne’s hottest new physical comedian Lily Fish (PO PO MO CO & Born in a Taxi) makes her Comedy Festival solo debut with her award winning all-ages show Jofus and the Plank.

Meet Jofus: fast quipping, story spinning, absurd miming extraordinaire. Part Marcel Marceau, part Looney Tunes, and armed with nothing but a plank of wood. 

In the tradition of the Umbilical Brothers and Lano and Woodley, this is turbo charged physical comedy for the entire family. Suitable for grown up kids, actual kids and everyone in between.

Directed and co-written by multi award-winning director Kimberley Twiner (The Travelling Sisters, PO PO MO CO, Maggot).

'Flawlessly executed physical comedy.' Stage Whispers

'Extraordinarily silly, outrageously creative, and absolutely edge of you seat engaging.' Tasmanian Times 

'A masterclass in detail and precision. Delightful.' Artshub 

'Lily Fish is a phenomenon.  She is astonishing.  She is a comedienne, a mime, an acrobat and a chameleon.' Stage Whispers 

'Basking in the joyous and ludicrous has never felt so good.Gutter Culture
