London Clown Festival Present

Healing King Herod

Sat 17 Jun 23 60 minutes
King Herod, famed for his Massacre of the Innocents, now leads a self-development pyramid scheme. Audiences transform from ancient soldiers into modern clients in an interactive, drag-clown, group therapy session.

Through improvised songs, political parodies, breathing exercises and cult-like rituals, Herod asks one thing: forgive…yourself. Within the show’s chaotic absurdity lurks male accountability, self-reckoning and facing trauma. Who is Herod’s process really for?

Healing King Herod is a recipient of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Keep it Fringe fund. Come to our only full-length official London preview before Herod heads to Edinburgh.

Created by Comedy Central-endorsed clown Riss Obolensky and director Eloïse Poulton.

A VAULT Festival sell-out show, nominated for Show of the Week.
