"One of the funniest things I have ever seen... They do versions of circus acts, which go so badly wrong and are so hilarious I nearly fell off the bench from laughing."

“Smiling all the way through… Still smiling.”
“Absolutely bloody genius.”
With Le Flea (Du Cirque) we wanted to create something loud, proud, bold and brilliant! With a love for circus, but absolutely no training, we wondered what attempting to make a circus might look like. The result was Le Flea (Du Cirque), a mad capped disasterpiece that finds fun in failure, and humour in humiliation!

Made for families, the show caters beautifully to optimistic, energetic and rambunctious kids, as well as long-toothed, cynical adults, with the shows unique blend of comedy and mayhem feeling like something in-between The Chuckle Brothers and Bottom, there are laughs for all the family.
