Sir David & His Animals
Join Clownfish Theatre for the magic of David Attenborough in an epic clowning and physical theatre show with the largest range of animals you will ever see on stage!
The magic of David Attenborough live on stage! A blue whale swims through the ocean depths. Racer snakes pursue a young iguana across the desert. Watch as two hapless but enthusiastic clowns recreate extraordinary scenes of the natural world – a world teetering on the brink of disaster. Catch this sell-out five star show for an epic hour of clowning, physical theatre and the largest range of animals you will ever see on stage!

Clownfish Theatre is a Bristol-based company formed in 2017 by Lecoq-graduates Jess Clough-MacRae and Jonathan Tilley. Clownfish was formed out of a love of physical comedy, clowning and the natural world. Our aim is to unite audiences of all ages and backgrounds through laughter, and to inspire passion and action to protect the world we live in through joyful physical comedy. Sir David &His Animals was developed with the support of Bristol Ferment, Circomedia and Taulignan Theatre Festival. Our tour has taken us from Bristol to the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne and Edinburgh Fringe 2019. We are excited to be returning to the Wardrobe Theatre where it all began.Artist's Website
