Inspired by the antics of Laurel and Hardy, The Marx Brothers, Mr Bean and commedia dell’ arte, Nittwits is an unashamedly light-hearted celebration of slapstick and knockabout comedy.
With original masks by Strangeface, this is a new and exciting development for The Complete Commedia Company. Far from Complete Commedia’s usual anarchic world and its riotous stock characters, Nittwits embraces the nostalgia of the silent movie. It is the story of two comical characters who meet, greet, argue and ultimately reunite over a newspaper. This non-verbal, highly visual comedy is ideal for children of all ages.
