With a comic wit befitting his convict ancestry, David Ladderman cavorts, contorts and canoodles. Joyous, skilful, and cheeky, his show is designed for you. Whip-cracking, ladder-climbing feats of dexterity and delusion will amaze and amuse you.

Having just played at Christchurch’s World Buskers Festival for the eighth time since 2003, David has also recently toured festivals in Canada and a host of international arts festivals and comedy festivals, with his astounding Shakespearean tribute ‘Battle of the Bastards’.

David is a fantastic and versatile performer with a strong and varied background in physical theatre, comedy and circus.  As part of the Loons Theatre Company, he toured NZ theatres and arts festivals and also to London with the acclaimed show ‘The Butler’, plus various other productions.

See this dynamic performer performing for the first time at the Newtown Festival!
