"I don't think there is a more hilariously anarchic talent on the loose in British theatre" (The Times) Life for the amazing Faz and his twitty assistant Twoo, has become listless and lacking in sparkle. That is, until Faz invents skungpoomery or "thinking up a word and then doing it. "Examples of skungpoomery are: "shankfinerbling" (going up to someone's legs and finerbling them with your nose) or "whangbungkling" (firing off bunklies into the air with the aid of a ruler) or even "bunkjamjarmering" (smearing strawberry jam on your pyjamas and doing a bunk into the street). And so saying, Faz and Twoo bunjamjarmer into the world outside, a world now a-glitter with excitement and adventure - thanks to skungpoomery. First produced for audiences of 7-13 year olds by the Nottingham Playhouse Roundabout Company, and subsequently by the Richmond Orange Tree."The only time I feel like dusting down the term "genius", in the pure sense of an influential demonic character, is when I'm confronted by a great Ken Campbell show." (Michael Coveney, Observer)
