The Umbilical Brothers are an international comedy phenomenon who have so far won a couple of BAFTAS’s, an Emmy, the Critics Choice at Edinburgh Fringe and the Helpman Award for Best Comedy Performers, to name a few. They have performed in 37 countries with 5 different shows. Now they are returning home with one of their most beloved ones, SPEEDMOUSE.
Full of the stuff you love best, Speedmouse is a live action, fast paced, rewind, slow motion, frame-by-frame adventure where two men create the impossible out of a microphone and a unique physical ability that has no equal. Speedmouse has earned a bevy of five star reviews and numerous awards including best stage production and best international show, along with a multi-platinum DVD that is sold in every corner of the world.
Join them in celebrating the 15 year anniversary of Speedmouse with a limited live theatrical run. If you haven’t seen this show live, you should. Really.

“They had the audience in the palm of their hand” ***** Theatrepeople “Speedmouse is that marvellous amalgam of brain and brawn comedy, anarchic yet so beautifully controlled, that it’s awesome” Australian Stage Online “Speedmouse is light on its feet and plays to the Umbilical’s great strengths, Collins’s terrific mime and Dundas’s uncanny sound effects work” **** The West Australian
