After a packed-to-the-rafters, sellout season in 2017, Tom Flanagan’s clumsy ‘Mr Fixit’, returns to wreak comic havoc in our Hume Bank Butter Factory Theatre one more time. There are only three performances of this joyous little show – don’t miss it!
Be swept up in the mayhem that is the larger-than-life 'elegant buffoon' Tom Flanagan, as one man’s life is flipped upside-down by the lonely, dust-covered world that surrounds him.
Tom’s first solo show - Kaput - opened early 2012 to a premier sold-out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in the Garden of Unearthly Delights, where it was nominated for Best Circus & Physical Theatre. It then went on to receive critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where the show won Mervyn Stutter's Spirit of the Fringe Award, and was listed by the Scotsman as one of the top 5 comedy shows at the Fringe.
Since then Tom Flanagan’s silent slapstick acrobatic comedy show Kaput has toured four continents, won countless awards and collected fans from 5 to 95 years old.
