Vitamin pushes the boundaries of physical comedy, storytelling and clown in 55 minutes of surreal skits, bizarre caricatures and demented accordion playing. What is it about? It is about life (‘vita’ in Italian). A man preaches from a book he never read, he becomes a captain, a priest, a marathon runner, a caterpillar, and farther.
Devised in cabarets and variety shows across Europe, Vitamin features memorable antiheroes, eccentric characters and the unconventional use of live accordion.
‘A gloriously life affirming stream of silliness.’ ★★★★ Edinburgh Reporter
‘Carlo Jacucci is a contemporary clown full of vitality and inventive insanity. A neat sketch-show, this act consists of surreal skits, bizarre caricatures and demented accordion playing. There’s a wonderful economy to his performance, with not a movement or a muttered word wasted, while the impressively minute details in his physical comedy wring every drop of humour from the simplest jokes.’ Three Weeks
