Cirque Du Hilarious

A couple of weeks ago we were very lucky to be invited to see a show in Blackpool. The show is called Cirque Du Hilarious and is on throughout August on the Central Pier in Blackpool.
It is years since I have been to the circus and my children haven't ever been so we were really looking forward to it.
As it was in Blackpool and the weather was so lovely we decide to make a day of it and have a picnic on the beach and chips after!
The children had a great time on the beach, paddling and building sandcastles and all too quickly it was time to go to the show.

The venue (Central Pier) was a great size and laid out with tables and chairs so you could sit wherever you wanted.
We picked seats just to the right of the stage, right at the front so we all had a good view.

How did they do that???
The show is run by a father and son act, Clive Webb and Danny Adams,  with extra help from another son and other people. There are dancing girls who come on inbetween the acts which creates a nice break.
The group work really well together who are very well rehearsed together and you may have seen them at Butlins.

The show is really funny, with a great balance of humour, funny acting and a huge amount of "should that have happened???"

There was a little bit of 'cheeky' humour, which was very well done (and went completely over the childrens heads!!!)
We enjoyed it so much, even though it was nothing like what I was expecting! 
Even now, a couple of weeks on, certain phrases are still being repeated and "do you remember.......?" still being quoted, which in my opinion is the sign of a fab day out.

I haven't got a guitar!!!
If you are in Blackpool, you definitely need to see this. Take a look here at show times and to buy your tickets.

We were invited along to see the show. All opinions are our own.
