A SHOW WHICH INTRODUCES A NEW STYLE OF
COMEDY...THE PIZZA COMEDY!
AWARD WINNER "PREMIO ARTUSI" 2015
for "The most relating show to the theme of the kitchen"
Jury Prize "Festa Artusiana" - Forlimpopoli, Italy - June 2015
An evolving show about kitchen and pizzas, two of the biggest Italian passions.
Visual Comedy and Kitchen Juggling
An Italian waiter is preparing his restaurant “Prego Signori” (This way please) . People get curious and come up close. It’s the beginning of a game of complicity, improvisation and interactive gags all based on the artist’s mime and street-show experience.
When “customers” are ready it’s time to offer them the “speciality of the house” : FULL MENU
As the William Tell music plays the waiter turn himself into a pizzaiolo. Trousers, jacket and tablecloths begin to fly and are caught in fast motion, the glutin free flour gets out of control (instead of flour, when requested by the event organization, confetti can be used).
But thanks to the unfailing “mattarello” everything returns to its place and, finally, pasta for pizza is ready!
One, two, then three pizzas are flying from side to side, thrown and caught in a proper kitchen-juggling performance.
So pizza is ready, a “Gran Finale” all to be discovered!
