The Big Picture

comedy · - · Ages 16+ · Australia

one person show

A worldly/otherworldly wild card takes you on an inner and outer journey, turning the world inside out and upside down. It’s been a long and winding storied road with a few bumps along the way. This fool without borders is a one of a kind multidimensional being whose life is just as much the performance.
We are strange creatures. Have to somehow channel into the Universe to make sense of it all. Does anyone really know what’s going on?
This show is a visual and aural extravaganza! It has some 60’s renaissance spirit. It is part standup comedy, part mixed up experimental cosmic trickster stuff with prop comedy, freestyle improvised foolery, playing with toys, juggling, fiddling with gadgets, musical nonsense, surprises and spring shoes etc.
He was the original ‘Fool on the Hill’ character in the Beatles/Cirque du Soleil ‘Love’ show for two years in Vegas at the Mirage Hotel & Casino.
Jolly has won awards at international performance festivals and is also an accomplished illustrator.
There will be artwork featured in the show.

Also traveled to 41 states in USA. Done multiple 24 to 53 hour shows in several countries in Europe.
