This comic tour de force is a “bizarro faux-circus act gone wrong”, said Brian Logan in The Guardian, in which the US performer Bill O’Neill plays both parts of a clowning double act: Kevin Calamity, who promises to slip on 1,000 banana peels, or your money back, and his brother-cumgopher, Joey. An amazing, “twisted” show, full of death-defying pratfalls. 

Pleasance Courtyard until 27 August, then Soho Theatre, London W1, 7-16 September
