About

The magic of David Attenborough live!

A blue whale swims through the depths. Racer snakes pursue an iguana across the desert. Two hapless fools recreate wonderful scenes of the natural world.

Catch this award-winning, five star show for an epic hour of clowning, physical theatre and the largest range of animals you will ever see on stage!

Clownfish recently played their second Adelaide Fringe with an updated version of their hit show, following a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe season and world tour in 2019.

"A beautiful deliverance of theatrical comedy."
All About Entertainment
"Never lets up in its comedy... excellent entertainment."
"Memorable moments from Sir David Attenborough's wildlife documentaries spring to life on stage in the most surprising and delightful way."
