Cast and Crew



If John Cleese had kids with Lucille Ball, the results might be Bolster and Lee.

Annie and Clint became creative collaborators in 2004, and with their strong rapport have continued to develop characters to play together ever since. From crazy male duos and siblings of all sorts, to mother and son teams and a variety of clowns, these two talents have paired their uniquely funny souls to great effect. Bolster and Lee employ their individual differences in height, sex and age, (37 and 62 yrs) to particular advantage; creating characters that are warm and relatable in their endearing nature, yet curiously distinctive in their imposing eccentricities and outlandishly powerful sense of the ridiculous.

The Knock 'Em Downs

Take a trip back in time to the side shows of old...The Knock ‘Em Downs is a comically interactive and visually engaging trip back in time to the side shows of old. Step inside the colourful tent and experience a crazy world of fun and games, where nostalgia has taken a curious twist and the carnies have turned into clowns! Meet Krackers n' Jam, two fools who are out to fool you. With Krackers ‘n Jam you can expect more than just a tasty bite… Featuring a variety of side show games sure to test your skill, with big prizes to be won, this odd-ball encounter will have you wishing you’d brought along your granny.
