WARNING : This show contains two big bearded Irishmen performing act or real danger and stupidity.
Touted as Cirque du Soleil meets Motorhead, Dirty Tattooed Circus is more reminiscent of Jackass meets Spinal Tap. Over the course of an hour you will feel amused, amazed, confused and, at times, worried for the performers’ wellbeing.
This is not your standard circus comedy fare, although they do juggle, they just happen to do it with axes, claw hammers and large open gardening shears. The chemistry and trust between the two international circus performers, Martin Mor and Logy Logan, is evident throughout.
As they banter and joke their way between risky and precarious stunts, it is not only the performers who are in danger, but also the audience. Not from any physical harm of course but from a good-natured ribbing and mocking from the two charming bearded Irishman. Overall Dirty Tattooed Circus Bastards is 50 minutes of rock music, tattoos, wit and a good dose of danger-filled antics that will cause you to both yelp in fear and howl with laughter. You’d be absolutely crazy not to go.
