‘Beautifully timed buffoonery... skills honed to  perfectionThe Oxford Times

A hilarious and heart-warming slapstick comedy inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s original film.

This delightful show tells the story of people starting a new life in a strange place. Based on hundreds of accounts of what it is like to come to live in an unfamiliar culture, the show is about the universal experience of trying to fit in when you stand out.

Exactly one hundred years after the release of Chaplin’s short film, the US passed the most controversial immigration policy in recent history. Chris Michael has captured the spirit of the original film to tell the story of modern migrants.

Chris has worked as a professional visual comedian all over the UK for nineteen years performing over 4000 shows. He has worked in theatre, circus, cabaret, festivals and in schools. In 2000 he was the first clown to perform with the renowned Gifford’s Circus. In 2012 he released a series of short films called “The Silly Seasons” which have been shown in film festivals all over the world.

Perfect for families with older children.

The show is fully accessible for deaf audiences.
