J-P koala

J-P Koala presents a show full of fun, laughter and amazing stunts - a family friendly spectacle with something for everyone. Medieval Axes, cute cuddly toy koalas and comedy chaos come together to produce a powerful display of skill and improvised comedy. In a moment he can take an audience from awe to laughter, from delight to wonderment, from surprise to joyous applause.
His juggling skills are legend within his own lifetime - Fire, Knives, Whips and Axes. And not just your common or garden axe - a real deal Scottish double headed Battle-Axe; something more likely last viewed in Game of Thrones rather than thrown twenty to thirty feet over his head.

Fearsomely funky, grippingly groovy, and radiantly retro, The Soul Movers – the lovechild of powerhouse vocalist, Lizzie Mack, and OG-Red-Wiggle, Murray Cook - are all of the above, as is the groovy soul, powerful pop, and rockin’ country bump in “Dumb Luck”, their fourth album over ten years, together.


Welcome to a world where even badly broken hearts do mend, good lovers get to love again, the world is still real and decent people are friendly to each other. And if your day’s gone bad, may imaginary butterflies kiss the top of your shining head so you can all get happy and lucky again.

A smack you in the face interactive comedy that somehow leaves you loved up. A genius blend of stand up and physical comedy! Heralded on the European festival scene as “hysterically funny.”

Kiki is definitely unique! She is a contortionist, an acrobat and a real life princess. After loosing her country of Kazador (she literally cannot find it!), she has traveled the world as the self-appointed Kazadorian Kultural attaché. Kiki is renowned for spreading joy and laughter with a shovel.

Kiki is one funny lady...
