Mump & Smoot in Something
“Mump & Smoot are a national treasure” – Edmonton Sun
“Mump and Smoot are the latest wrinkle on the existential fall-guy, the Everymen buddy-buddies alone at the edge of the world. With their horned caps, bulbous noses and pancake eye masks, however, they are closer to big-tent Laurel and Hardy than new-age Vladimir and Estragons...” - New York Newsday
You can celebrate with famed Canadian clown duo Mump & Smoot when they return to The Cultch with Something—the hit show that put them on the map! Last delighting Vancouver audiences in 1994, Mump & Smoot return with a rare revival of the show that started it all. In Something, we find the intrepid duo prancing through the etiquette of a fine cafe, the sorrow and despair of a wake, and the pandemonium of the doctor’s office.
Mump & Smoot, also referred to as clowns of horror, inhabit a parallel universe called Ummo, worship a god named Ummo, and speak their own brand of gibberish, Ummonian. Enter a giddy, scary world of pure imagination, as the duo turns conventional clowning on its head in this darkly humourous work that ranges from zany to macabre. Not for children!
