Lots of fun. Three expressive actors put on a playful show for us. Giggles at first, building into huge laughs as the evening progresses.
There was a wide age range in the audience, from schoolkids on up, and everyone was having a good time....continued

An inventive adventure of clowning, gags and gadgetry, where the simplest tasks become elaborate, hilarious processes — without a word spoken.
All silent. All funny. In a Bri-Ko performance, the simplest tasks become inventive adventures of clowning, gags and gadgetry. The three performers enact silent scenes in which easy processes are made as difficult and elaborate as possible through sketch, acting and clowning. Bri-Ko’s appeal is universal. Anyone of almost any age, speaking any language, with any cultural background can understand and appreciate the show. It’s family-friendly, but not a children’s show: bring your kids or bring your date!
