Man In A Box – Comedy Walkabout | UK

Man In A Box

Man in a Box is a hilarious Covent Garden style act ideal for children and adults of all ages! See the box run, jump and take on a huge personality. You have to see it to appreciate just how funny it is!

Curiosity is aroused by the arrival of two fellows with his small box. Despite their size one manages to squeeze into the box! Suddenly the box leaps into life, grows legs and totters off. For public events the Box will bring and work with a performing minder character.

Although this is a roving performance, it is best placed at busy junction or gathering place within your event. The box doesn’t cover large distances well, so please, no parades.


Why not add your corporate logo to the box for a bit of innovative advertising? The Man in a Box is always the centre of attention, and with your corporate details he is the perfect advertising tool! These bespoke panels are available in 3 sizes, to fit the entire box:

63cms x 70cms (x 2 sides)
80cms x 70cms (x 2 sides)
63cms x 80cms (x 1 lid)

Logos should be printed central to the panel, there is a 5cm bleed around the panels for fitting.

Standard Length of Performance:

For day time events/public/trade shows, the sets are 3 x 30 minutes or similar , with a minder. They can provide a number of boxes, out at the same or different times.

Alternatively, the performer can do a 7 minute cabaret stage dance piece. For walkabout/meet and greet he normally performs a 1 hour set for evening or private events.
