Street entertainer and walkabout circus performer.
Rochdale’s first space traveler, Major Mal Function, taxis along the streets on his electrically propelled space shuttle in search of mission control. This is a highly interactive mobile performance suitable for any planet with a relatively flat surface and an atmosphere of fun.
The Christmas Pudding
This delightfully interactive pudding glides along to a background of suitably seasonal music bringing a magical and slightly surreal comedy to any Yuletide event. Based on a specially adapted electric vehicle, this walkabout performance can cover quite a large area if required. Whether glimpsed from a distance or experienced close up, this pudding is guaranteed to entertain.
Introducing the world's stupidest pirate. He thought the card in the job centre said juggler, now he wanders the seven seas, outdoor events and the odd shopping centre or two in search of his lost treasure of smuggled gold. Accompanied by his repetitive puppet parrot (easy for you to say), this 9ft. tall peg-leg stilt pirate mingles with the crowds ever on the lookout for new deck swabbers and galley slaves.
Meet the wonderful scarecrow man. This 8ft. tall stilt character mingles with the crowds at outdoor events, indoor events, and the odd shopping centre or two.
The Weather House
A one-man two-person show full of circus, music and comedy. Abandoned by the sunny day woman the rainy day man continues on alone to report the latest ever changing weather conditions. Beset with problems of Meteorological proportions his task is not a simple one but with the help of the unsuspecting audience he manages to bring this story to a truly memorable, thigh-slapping conclusion. Performed on a full-sized van mounted weather house, the show features fast costume changes (that aren't always fast enough), daft gags and unusual circus skills.
Washing machines that play music, human cannons that don't, and the legendary Ironing Board of Death all feature in this explosive kaleidoscope of circus, music and comedy. With a collection of wacky props, hilarious timing and the greatest shoulders on earth, the witty, the charming and oh so stupid hero takes to the stage in his quest to become the worlds greatest daredevil stuntman. Mick "Fudge" Chapman has been performing and teaching circus skills nationwide since 1989. This unique one man show is performed in , on, around and above a colourfully decorated truck stage providing an amazing spectacle for any outdoor event.
In A Spin
This unique one-man street style show centres around the world's only (?) musical washing machine. Starting with members of the audience disco-dancing with sink plungers and finishing with Fudge attempting to juggle fire, knives and cheap nasty tennis racquets blindfold on the legendary Ironing Board of Death (oooh!), this is a show performed by an idiot, full of sound, fury... and domestic appliances.
