Carpe Idiotus is pronounced "Car-pay Idi-oat-us" and it literally means "Seize the Idiots!" The combined talents of musician Tony Williams and all-round funny man Dennis Clare mix a hilarious blend of captivating mime, engaging songs, side-splitting comedy, interactive improvisations and mesmerising visual theatre.
These two professional idiots have performed together for over a decade with audiences of all types and all ages – from corporate VIP events to family cruise ships, television appearances, RSL luncheons, to The Melbourne Comedy Festival and sold out theatres.
It’s easy to see why Carpe Idiotus has been inundated with interest following their recent appearance on Channel 7’s Australia’s Got Talent. There is simply nothing else like this act in the Corporate Market!
What can you expect from a Carpe Idiotus spot? A wardrobe malfunction will give rise to an embarrassing but very funny solution. You’ll see the miracle of birth in a whole new light and a giant Slinky will vacuum its way across the stage eating everything in sight!
The show can come in a 15 – 20 minute spot (perfect between entrée and main courses) and a 30 minute spot is also available.
