Man in a Box
Internationally regarded as the world's only living man in a box. He scuttles about meeting and greeting.
Give him half a chance and he'll have you dancing and playing footsie. Very interactive.
Curiosity is aroused by the arrival of two characters with a box. Despite his size one manages to climb in and shut the lid.
Curiosity is aroused by the arrival of two fellows with their small box. Despite his size one manages to squeeze into the box! Suddenly the box leaps into life, grows legs and totters off.
Carefully guided by his companion, the box meets and greets and has a passion for playing footsie. This box has quite a following.
Also can be a Christmas box we gather.

Man in a Box
Maximum of three x 30 minute sets, although often 2 x 30 mins with a minimum of a half hour break between sets.
- Although this is a roving performance, it is best placed at busy junction or gathering place within your event. The box doesn't cover large distances well, so please no parades.
- Man in a Box has to have a 'minder' with him at all times, as we are sorry to say, people have tried to push him over (sounds funny, but actually...)
Vehicle access to venue and/or parking space close to the action, were possible parking passes should be issued or reimbursement of the parking fee, please.
Wonderfully entertaining as always, your 'Man in a Box' is a true 21st century pied piper - captivating adults and kids alike with that great mix of anxiety and delight."
- Manchester International Arts

"A great show that draws a huge crowds every time, the perfect combination of audience participation and wild crazy humour. Man in a Box has the ability to focus hundred's of pairs of eyes on to just one small egg or one small biscuit with explosive results" Event Director
