Panto, as most British traditions, is a deeply weird thing but entertains many families over the Christmas period.
Potted Panto is a quick and jolly canter through Pantoland hosted by a couple of energetic and resourceful performers.
With so many pantomimes on offer at this time of year it can be tough to choose which one to watch. Thankfully Potted Panto has come to the rescue with a show which takes you through seven pantomimes in just 70 minutes.
They’re at it again. And in this dour year, crowned with the financially reckless renaissance of West End theatre, Dan and Jeff – Daniel Clarkson and Jeff Turner – are welcome home to the daytime West End with Potted Panto.
Love London Love Culture offers a guide to some of the shows set to open in London next month.
Double Olivier nominees (and former CBBC TV presenters) Dan and Jeff return for a 10th anniversary festive season of Potted Panto, running for a festive season at London’s Garrick Theatre from 5 December 2020 to 10 January 2021 (press night is 6 December).
This one will get you into the Christmas spirit, guaranteed. I’m gearing up for the holidays with the hilarious duo of Dan & Jeff and their festive favourite Potted Panto, another in my series of post-show talks for producer James Seabright.

Where King Kong really impresses is in its creative staging, with resourceful use of stage space by director Owen Lewis and designer Simon Scullion.
Before I attended King Kong, Daniel Clarkson‘s bonkers stage parody of the 1933 film classic, last week at The Vaults, I never knew there was such a thing as a nose flute. Now I will never forget! A diva nose flautist is one of the hundreds (?) of characters portrayed by King Kong‘s multi-roling cast of […]
Ridiculous, slightly bizarre, but also just a little bit brilliant – this is Owen Lewis and Daniel Clarkson’s delightfully comic spin on Hollywood’s classic tale of adventure, love, wonder and, of course, bananas.
The brand-new parody of King Kong, written by Potted Potter’s Daniel Clarkson, has officially premiered this week at The Vaults. As reviews from the Mates start rolling in, and Mates co-founder Terri Paddock prepares to host an exclusive post-show Q&A with Clarkson and the cast next week, here are a collection of social media interviews we filmed in the King Kong rehearsal room we think you’ll enjoy.
From Daniel Clarkson (co-creator of Potted Potter) and director Owen Lewis comes this lively and very silly reimagining of the classic Kong story. I will be the first to admit that I have never seen the appeal of King Kong as a film, a giant monkey that causes chaos and destruction just doesn’t seem like… Read More
