    Time Out

    Calling kids aged five to 100: join our mighty gang in a sensational interactive show where the worlds of comedy and beatboxing collide with electrifying results.

    Pick up beatboxing tips to impress your friends, make mind-blowing music and laugh through your pantaloons!

    Fantastic family fun and silliness galore, with award-winning comedian Jarred Christmas (as seen on CBBC’s Joke Machine and The Dog Ate My Homework) and Hobbit, world champion beatboxer and UK Loopstation champion.

    Best Kids Show nominee, Leicester Comedy Festival. As recommended in The Week Junior.

    'Breathtaking vocal percussion'

    The Stage

    'A good fun show, Jarred Christmas with lovable doofus energy and extraordinary vocal gymnastics from Hobbit.
    A fusillade of beats and sound effects score the dumbshow antics of human cartoon Christmas.  
    It's the kind of thing you could watch all day…great value'

    Guardian

    'Brilliant! An elating combination of seriously awesome music and laughter. Great humour appealing to every age.
    Everybody left this show with a spring in their step!'

    'A must see. The kids loved every second of it. Definitely recommended but it does come with a warning -
    by the end of it your kids may believe that they too are world class beatboxers or stand-up comedians'
