Punt – Comedy Street Performance | UK
Two Oxbridge undergraduates descend from their ivory towers and are off for a relaxing punt. Blissfully unaware of reality and physics, the boat drifts down busy streets as they regale and serenade the public. Hilarious, interactive walkabout entertainment.
This promenade performance is based on an adapted electric vehicle, which can cover quite a large area if required, it works both as a surreal image glimpsed from a distance and as comic interaction. The punt requires a relatively flat surface.
This is a unique and quintessentially English walkabout that oozes charm and is playfully surreal. Perfect for summer events and festivals.
The punt also works as the “Ferry over the river Styx”, perfect for Halloween or any ghoulish event. Dressed with cobwebs and creepy crawlies, with Death standing in the stern and his faithful servant at the helm the boat drifts along on its way to the Underworld.
Standard Length of Performance: 3 x 30/40 minute sets.
