Heartfelt and Hilarious Hour of Cartoonish Fun at the Torch

Described as a “comedy genius” by the Review Hub, audiences will be thrown headfirst into a colour-filled world of puppets, balloons and poopy-loops this April. The TigerFace Show at the Torch Theatre will try to keep his adult-cynicism at bay whilst he re-creates the last ever episode of his favourite childhood TV show.

On Friday 19 April, The TigerFace Show will descend into absurdism as the show quickly unfurls into an audience responsive, ragged-scream party-piece, that’s one part misery, two parts joyful and all in the company of his friends The Dream Maker, and Fast Hands (the jungles very own BSL interpreter).

The TigerFace Show is a wild, weird, and wonderful comedy performance that asks us to re-think what it was we wanted to be when we grew up in the hopes of finding some child-like happiness in adulthood!

Justin Teddy Cliffe, the man behind The TigerFace Show, is a south Wales based Theatre Maker who works across multiple forms as an individual and is also a collaborator and a founding member of Tin Shed Theatre Co. Over the past 12 years he has created his own work as well as having developed and performed work in the UK and internationally with; Common Wealth Cardiff, The Bristol Old Vic, Battersea Arts Centre, National Theatre Wales, Qube Art Gallery, Ffotogallery, China Plate, Alma Alter: Bulgaria and the Birmingham REP.

In 2020 he was nominated by National Theatre Wales for the Evening Standard Future Theatre Makers Award for his work as a Director.

Justin said: “My training is in performance, directing and devising theatre with applied filmmaking, and in my personal practice I create absurdist, comedic and raucous work that explores human experience, society, mental health and philosophy through collaborative action and a contemporary kind of clowning.”

The Tigerface Show (suitable for 16+) will be performed at the Torch Theatre on Friday 19 April at 7.30pm. Ticket prices: £15. For tickets phone the Box Office on 01646 695267 or click here.
