Kids Bring Your Parents to this Show
Oddball, A Comedy for Kids, is safe for kids to bring their parents to see. Grab some tickets at the box office in Rymill Park then look for the colourful yellow tent just inside the entrance. The show is at La Petite Grande, Gluttony.

There is toilet humour (bonus!), magic (or maybe a biology lesson - because what goes in must come out again, right?), performing gold fish, instruments not known to orchestras, bananas, romance and dangerous weapons.

Parents, bring your kids to this show

Dado, a Canadian comedian living in Germany, knows language is not necessary to connect.

He is a man of a million faces. Some of these faces are made over the heads of his small new assistants in secret communication with the adults. However, it is his non-verbal communication with the children and their cooperation - or improvisation - that really makes the show.

If your sense of humour has grown up and moved out, then this show is not for you. Parents (and other big kids who sneak in without children) will have a ball with this odd creature who performs as Mon Onclele Bossu (my uncle the hunch back).

Dado has a flower. Can he win over a Mum?

Dado is simply brilliant for all ages. Each show is a new priceless collaboration between Dado and his small volunteers. I am sure I could watch his show again and laugh just as much if not more.

Dado hits the funny bone every time. How accurate is the volunteer Dad?

Kids can go to Dado's website and make a variety of Dado fingerpuppets or collect a free fingerpuppet sheet at the end of the show. Book tickets for Oddball at fringetix. It's a laugh a minute.
