Comedy Walkabout: The Pink Policemen
The Pink Policemen
If the price of freedom is eternal vigilance you can be sure these lads will have their hands deep in their pockets.
Among the very finest exponents of walk-about street theatre, the Pink Policemen have conspicuously and obtrusively contributed to the successes of many community and arts’ festivals over the years. Once seen they are never forgotten. No act gets photographed more as they achieve astonishing success after success with such very practical public functions as controlling the crowds, controlling the traffic, telling the time and giving candid directions to misguided tourists.
Why is the uniform pink? Like all great artistic and cultural shifts whose time has come, it’s aim is to challenge and subvert long held misconceptions and beliefs about the propriety of colours. Blue is for a boy, pink is for a girl!? What is all this nonsense about? Pink is a lovely colour it’s as simple as that (and the public definitely do like their policemen in pink).
The Pink Policemen have been hugely popular and much photographed at major festivals in England, Holland, Germany, the USA and Canada as well as being favourites at numerous small town and civic events.
