Stilt Walkers: Pompous Maximus & Servillius Wretch

They’re bigger than Ben Hur! Pompous the Roman centurion and Servillius his devious slave turn up after years in the wilderness to check up how the Roman Empire is doing.


"They’re immediate crowd magnets. I have the good fortune to work in an upstairs office at the National Folk Festival and whenever the dynamic duo appeared in the courtyard below there was a general rush of staff to the windows, even those of us who’d already seen the act, because it’s new and different and side-splittingly funny every time. They can gauge an audience and have it seduced in minutes, their intuition is impeccable and they have a sense of timing that most comics would die for. Talk about knowing how to work the room…."
