Saturday 27 September – NoFit State Circus Guest show: EricTheFred

With 30 years of performing skills and experience, including Slava’s Snow Show, Chris Lynam brings to life, a brand new character, ErictheFred.

‘the most dangerously funny man on the planet’
Eddie Izzard

ErictheFred is a clown, but if you think you know clowns – think again. Here, the traditional art of clowning is taken to another wondrous level.

This is a curious and poignant story of an old trouper trying to come to terms with a fading career.

NoFit State, Four Elms Road, 8pm
Tickets: £10/£8 (available here)
