The most memorable fake celebrity you’ve never heard of, he’s an explosion of comic genius, questionable good looks and rockstar charisma. Expect banger tunes.

MULLET
MAN

Mulletman will be Joined on stage by
the unbelievably talented Mim

Christchurch legend and expert in leave-in hair conditioner, MulletMan has been keeping world-wide festival audiences dangerously close to doing little laughy wees since the days when the mullet wasn’t on the hairdressers’ banned list. 

 

He juggles, he japes, he pulls off death-defying stunts without setting fire to anyone too often. He’s a verbal and physical comedy genius and a master of audience participation. MulletMan’s 15 years at the World Buskers Festival and seven at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival says he must be good, eh. 

‘A well-oiled machine with perfect timing and tone.’ 

—Charlie Gates, Christchurch Press

 

‘Undeniable chemistry...’ 

—Mim’s dad

BASKET-BALL

JONES

He bounces like a boss and throws like a pro.

This internationally-renowned one man show also gets you laughing like a drain as he combines some impressive freestyle basketball skills with equally impressive circus skills and original comedy. 

 

With 15 years’ experience and hundreds of performances in a list of countries that ticks off most of the alphabet, Basketball Jones knows how to bring fresh fun and get the audience involved. He hits the spot. 

KOZO

KAOS

Kozo Kaos holds the title of New Zealand's Fastest Juggler.

Part magician, part stunt performer, part funnyman, Kozo Kaos also holds the title of New Zealand’s Fastest Juggler. The fact that the objects he juggles are sometimes on fire or extremely sharp also makes him part sexy dangerman. 

 

An Aucklander, but don’t hold that against him, Kozo Kaos has been thrilling audiences throughout NZ and the rest of the world for more than a decade with his signature blend of illusion, circus performance, risk and rock‘n roll. 

JESS
THE
MESS

Jess the Mess is one of NZ's favourite clowns and a hit with the littlies as well as you big kids.

A couple of minutes into her show and you’ll know how Jess the Mess earned her name. A mix of eggs, fire, sparkles, interactive comedy and some seriously sweet dance moves, Jess the Mess is one of NZ’s favourite clowns and a hit with the littlies as well as you big kids. 

 

But don’t take just our word for it. Described by pundits and press as “refreshingly down-to-earth” and “very funny and original”, her bag of multi-talents have dazzled and entertained audiences worldwide, from Canada’s famed Le Festival des Clown de Montreal to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

‘Refreshingly down to earth.’

CIRCOTICA CIRCUS

Brace yourself for a spectacle of human daring and skill from Christchurch's own Circotica Circus school.

Mim, Olivia, Kiera and Courtney are an ensemble of talented teachers and students who perform together in a stunning display of circus arts, fun and fearlessness their mums can’t bring themselves to watch.

 

They throw things. they catch things. They sometimes catch each other. Expect aerial stunts and ridiculous bendiness. What doesn’t take your breath away will leave you roaring in admiration. And thinking you should go to the gym.

MULLETMAN
& MIM

He’s funny and hairy and she’s a bendy fairy. 

MulletMan & Mim deliver extreme juggling, acrobatics, eye-watering contortion and a buttload of cheek. 

 

Crowd-pleasing faves and highly talented regulars on the international festival circuit, they’re a real-life couple with chemistry who combine their unique hot circus skillsets to bring you a performance that’s as outrageous as it is accomplished. And possibly the other way around. Don’t try this at home, kids.
