Fish and Twiner's Bait Shop

Lily Fish Jofus and the Plank

Fish and Twiner's Bait Shop

Lily Fish Jofus and the Plank

Winner Best Solo 2020 New Zealand Fringe Festival

Winner Best Physical Theatre Fringe at the End of the World 2020

Turbo-charged clowning from Melbourne's hottest new physical comedian.

Meet Jofus: fast quipping, story spinning, absurd miming extraordinaire. 

Part Marcel Marceau, part Looney Tunes and armed with nothing but a plank of wood. 

Life is going swimmingly for Jofus until one day there’s a knock at the front door. It’s the big bad wolf. Jofus leaps out the window and starts to fall. Like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole, time stretches and a surreal adventure begins. 

A live action cartoon that melds clown, mime and theatre.

For people who grew up on Robin Williams’ Genie, Saturday Disney and The Simpsons.

'Intricately crafted physical comedy.' The Age

'Thoroughly silly... in the best possible way.' Fringe Feed

‘Lily Fish is a phenomenon. She is astonishing. She is a comedian, a mime, an acrobat and a chameleon.’ Stage Whispers

Performed by Lily Fish (PO PO MO CO, The Wholesome Hour) and directed by Kimberley Twiner (The Travelling Sisters, PO PO MO CO).
