He's known as the Willy Wonka of Weird, the Prince of Putrid and the King of Kids Comedy, he's Mr Snot bottom!
Back at The Garden of Unearthly Delights for 2020 by popular demand, Mr Snot bottom promised Adelaide a beautiful, elegant and polite piece of performance.
This did not happen and the audience loved every minute of it!
Mark Trenwith is an Australian based stand-up comedian whose colourful and clownish style has seen him appear in many Australian film and TV projects. He's an experienced festival performer and rolls with the punches (kids can throw some tricky developments at him during the show). It's not surprising that the show was nominated for Best Children's Event at Perth Fringe World in 2018.
Mr Snot Bottom is for kids 4 and up (and their parents). It's full of disgustingness, lots of horrible stories, gross gags and routines full of energy and slapstick fun. He gets the kids involved and laughing along with him and his hilarious assistant all the way. The adults get to have a go too, joining in a joke or two on stage.
There was plenty of noise and participation with enough fart jokes and sounds to keep the kids smiling all the way through. Mr Snot Bottom isn't your average clown show. It's well-directed, specifically for children with plenty of movement and just plain silliness; aided by timely and whimsical sound and lighting effects.
It's a great way for young kids to engage with the Fringe Festival and to say that they've been to see a Fringe show.
It's easy to find the venue, The Factory. Just head into the garden and it's not far in on your left. We arrived fifteen minutes early (recommended as the show attracts hundreds of people).
I'd recommend that you take the kids to see Mr Snot bottom's Horrible, Terrible, Really, Really, Bad, Bad, Show. You'll have a fantastic, excellent, really, really, good, good time.
Mr Snot bottom's Horrible, Terrible, Really, Really, Bad, Bad, Show is 50 minutes long and plays at The Factory at the Garden of Unearthly Delights this public holiday Monday and Sat/Sun 14th and 15th March at 2.30 pm.
