Their last show, equally names Släpstick premiered in January 2017 in the Netherlands and was showered with enthusiastic reviews in the Dutch National Press. Later that year they won the Spirit of the Fringe Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and subsequently landed tours throughout Belgium, France, England, Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg and New Zealand.

Virtuosic musical comedy at a ridiculously high level
Combining rich tradition and unbelievable innovation, a five star show!
SLÄPSTICK is an ode to musical comedy: from the medieval troubadour to Spike Jones, from the Marx Brothers to Grock. The men of SLÄPSTICK create their own music hall whilst giving a special twist to famous scenes from Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Laurel & Hardy. The result is a show of musical virtuosity, emotion and humour, from the biggest to the very smallest, in technicolour and black and white, and above all – SLÄPSTICK!
