Pelican Comedy are coming to Brighton Fringe to bring you another round of their wonderful whirlwind performance.
An illustrious TV actor famous for portraying a hot-shot lawyer, and a dispirited real-life solicitor, stuck in the mundane world of litigation, are thrown together as they become implicated in a chain of bizarre, interconnected crimes. With both their careers on the line, the two must work together to solve a mystery as playful and energetic as it is funny.
Pelican uses sketch, clown, and physical theatre to create a surreal, inventive and joyful world, balancing well-crafted comedy with a bold and vibrant aesthetic. Papier-mâché props, colourful costumes and reimagined household objects combine to form a set that wouldn’t look out of place in a budget sci-fi film. The performers command the stage with an infectious energy, creating a world so enticing, “the audience are more than happy to climb onto the stage – everyone willingly swarms from their seats to take part” (EdFringeReview).
As wildly funny as it is inventive, Pelican blends comedy, theatre and friendship in a show that “has half the audience dancing and the rest laughing” (TCS).
