Jamie Adkins - Circus Incognitus

"Adkins` style is brilliantly simple."
-The Stage


The "unforgettable one-man circus comedy," Jamie Adkins stars in his non-stop Circus Incognitus as the vulnerable everyman, who has just written a terrific show. He wanders onto stage with the new show in a box, delighted to find the audience ready waiting. Knowing he has just the thing, Jamie struggles to build the scene around him using everyday objects. Things go awry as his props prove most unhelpful: his ladder disintegrates under foot! He wrangles an animated chair, tussles with a pesky hat, negotiates a precarious slack wire and juggles almost everything. Theatre goers even get involved in the endeavour by tossing lemons for Jamie to catch on a fork…held between his teeth! An expert at comedy born of desperation, Jamie`s performance is humble and unguarded. Adkins deftly escorts the audience along his poetic journey with sidesplitting wit.
