Defrosted: Clowns do that frosty film!
“Love that frosty film or hate it, you will laugh your stripy socks off at lovable clowns Cat & Nicko and their puppet rock band. DEFROSTED is one big, bonkers blast of fun; a super-silly show for all the family featuring parodies of your children’s favourite film moments, lots of interaction and physical comedy. Defrosted is one big, bonkers blast of fun.”
Cat and Nicko and are comedy clown duo from the UK who trained together in Paris as clowns. If you have seen Spot Bots on CBeebies in the UK (the ABC for Kids equivalent) then you might recognise Cat from her role as Bubbles the Mermaid.
Defrosted is a very funny show at this years Fringe; it’s very silly and hilarious. From the minute Cat and Nicko take to the stage they had us giggling. They were both so full of life: their body language and their facial expressions were fabulous, their animated personalities brought joy to the performance and it was clear that the show was being enjoyed by both the adults and the children in equal measure.
It’s a low budget set, with a story line loosely based around Frozen but it doesn’t matter if you love the film or loathe it, there’s lots more to the show than references to the film. I really liked the music and would have enjoyed a few more tunes during the show. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved, with some children coming onto the stage to take part and even one poor Dad being dragged up to duet with Cat for ‘Let it Go’ whilst wearing a comedy Elsa wig. This was definitely the highlight for the adults in the audience!
We went as a family with our six year old and eight year old and we all loved it – it was our favourite kids show so far this year. So if you like a bit of silly fun and a bit of clowning around, then I am sure you’d enjoy it too!
