WINNERS of the coveted Children's Choice Award and 5 Star SELL OUT Edinburgh Fringe sensation, this exciting kid's comedy can't wait to be back in Radelaide High calibre circus, a rocking soundtrack and genuine belly laughs propelled the Australian debut of Children are Stinky to 5 Star Sell-Out seasons in Melbourne, Adelaide and Edinburgh.

The duo's attempts to prove that kids are stinky are met with messy, ridiculous, hysterical twists. They only succeed in proving that children are awesome and they know it! Expect daredevil stunts, incredible acrobatics, lighting fast hula hoops, loads of laughs & mischievous fun, leaving adults and children with their jaws on the floor hooting for more.

The company toured the U.K in 2011 including performances at the London National Theatre and a smash of cabarets attended by Mick Jagger, before dazzling the Scots at the Edinburgh Festival with rave reviews.
