ED2012 Children’s Show Review: Mr Snot Bottom’s Stinky Silly Show (Mr Snot Bottom)

ED2012 2/5 Reviews ED2012 Children's Shows Reviews

The title of ‘Mr Snot Bottom’s Stinky Silly Show’ should give you a fairly good idea of the content of this gross-out comedy show for kids. Energetic Mr Snot Bottom (Australian Mark Trenwith) took us on a tour of his house; introduced his friend Phlegm and told some stories, all riddled with jokes about bums, poo and snot. Trenwith did struggle somewhat with a young audience who often veered between shy apathy and inquisitive heckling, and there were a few uncomfortable bits of gender stereotyping (apparently dads never change nappies). However, the regular quiet giggles suggested that with a slightly louder audience, this could be a fun show for fans of toilet humour and their strong-stomached parents.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 1-26 Aug (not 13, 20, 21, 22), 11.00am.
