“KING OF CLOWNS”

"King of Clowns"

– The New York Times

Press

“Throughout this performance Lynam is very expressive and engaging, oozing with energy and charisma.”

– Edinburgh 49

“The funniest man on the planet.”

– Eddie Izzard

“Repeatedly impressive, with creative ideas brilliantly executed, including some stand-out set pieces that hilariously flip expectations on their head.”

Chortle

“Chris Lynam is a brilliantly bizarre antidote to today’s truculent society.

– The New York Times

“Surreal unhinged quality which makes for comic greatness.

– The Guardian

Chris’ Eric The Fred show brings to mind Monte Carlo style mime and clown shows of the 1950s and 1960s and very up-market performance art shows. It would not go amiss in Las Vegas and is astonishingly sophisticated, complex and professional. An immense talent.

John Flemming

“Achingly beautiful and seriously funny for all its grimness, this is a highly structured, well-designed technical show, and yet Lynam’s true brilliance is that he is always there in the moment, contemporary in every way.”

The Stage

“As well as being technically excellent, it’s genuinely perverse and absurd – equal parts David Lynch, Samuel Beckett and Looney Tunes.”

The Scotsman

“Timeless dark comedy, Eric is a solid display of clowning and physical theatre skill.”

The List

“The style of the projections called to mind German Expressionist cinema and the silent science fiction films of a George Melies.”

– TVBomb

“Mahout of the bizarre buffoon extraordinaire to wit.”

– The Times

About Chris Lynam

Very few members of the comedy world are worthy of the title ‘genius’; Chris Lynam isn’t one of them but he comes damn close.

Chris Lynam is renowned for many things, but mainly for bringing his own brand of crazed humour to bear on unsuspecting audiences. His comedy is wild and exciting, stretching variety to its limits.

Any one show may include acrobatics, outlandish operatic and orchestral overtures, flying sousaphones and anything else which may spring to Mr Lynam’s unnecessarily large and vivid imagination.

Chris Lynam is renowned for many things, but mainly for bringing his own brand of crazed humour to bear on unsuspecting audiences. His comedy is both dangerous and exciting, stretching variety to its limits.

Any one show may include pyrotechnics, acrobatics, outlandish operatic and orchestral overtures, flying sousaphones and anything else which may spring to Mr Lynam’s unnecessarily large and vivid imagination.

Indescribably wild and wondrous physical comedy from the man with the Eraserhead haircut. Chris Lynam, the infamous iconoclastic clown, brings you his interactive, acrobatic, manically musical and gloriously epic show!

The script isn’t written ’til the end of the show, so don’t be afraid to caress the beast – it only wants to play!

ErictheFred
