The Peter Principle
Part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2020Buy tickets
CIRCUS! COMEDY! STUFF!
The Peter Principle is the philosophy that every worker is promoted to the level of their incompetence, but what if you are already hopeless at everything?
This physical comedy with circus bits in it works 9 to 5 to understand our relationship with work, procrastination and purpose.
This 45 minute travesty is suitable for interns, work experience kids and rusted-on pencil pushers everywhere!
“McDonald’s rope routine is jaw-dropping, and the lack of lyra or sequins in favour of jeans and a business shirt reminds us that these extraordinary feats are also very human.” –heckler.com.au (...We Should Quit)
“McDonald’s ‘corde lisse’ (rope acrobatics) is fantastic, giving us just enough suspense while showing off his honed skill” – Glam Adelaide (...We Should Quit)
