Jofus and the Plank

Tuesday 24 September 2019 - Sunday 29 September 2019

Fish and Twiner’s Bait Shop present Jofus and the Plank, an anarchic new clown work by Lily Fish, one of Melbourne’s most talented physical comedians.

Meet Jofus: fast quipping, story spinning, absurd miming extraordinaire. Part Marcel Marceau, part Looney Tunes, and armed with nothing but a plank of wood.

This is turbo-charged clowning at its stupidest and most precise. Life is going swimmingly for Jofus until one day there’s a knock at the front door. It’s the big bad wolf. Jofus leaps out the window and starts to fall. Like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole, time stretches and a surreal adventure begins. As they hurtle towards the concrete Jofus encounters a host of outrageous characters and bizarre scenarios. This is a live action cartoon for people who grew up on Robin Williams’ Genie, Saturday Disney and The Simpsons.

Jofus and the Plank is an hour long multi-character physical comedy that melds clown, mime and storytelling. 

From the makers of Not Romeo and Juliet and multi-award winning physical comedy ensemble PO PO MO CO.
