Richard Filby: Slick Tricks & Dry Wit
  • Brighton Fringe

The newest show from Richard Filby promises to be his best work to date. The juggling, as always, is world-class. The stunts are thrilling and provocative. The humour " spot on. Theres a script but its loose " more of a guideline. With so much audience participation and interaction, theres not much chance of keeping this fun train on the tracks. Once the show starts rolling along everyones just going to have to strap in and see where we end up. The obvious discipline of the circus arts mixed with Richards professionalism allows the audience to watch the chaos unfold with confidence. For this show, Richard Filby has hidden a few of his classic gags and tricks in the mix but they are camouflaged well with a whole series of new and exciting skills and jokes hes been working on all year long. With more high-risk stunts, more difficult juggling and more fun the whole show will entertain any audience of 12 and up.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
