The Blammers blamming with Ricky Gervais
***** "Gobsmackingly brilliant, this is the best office party I have ever attended," is the verdict from Express' Neil Norman in his 5/5-star review. The Financial Times calls BLAM! "Blissfully, jaw-crackingly funny" also awarding it 5 generous stars, and Metro couldn't agree more, describing BLAM! as "an adrenaline rush that blasts the nine-to-five blues into outer space." with yet another 5/5-rating. And the superlatives kept coming, "A raucous piece of slapstick physical theatre" - The Times, "Spectacular … a dazzling succession of exhilarating action sequences.” - The Telegraph, "Jaw-dropping" - Timeout London.
Here's what the audiences at the Peacock Theatre had to say about BLAM!:
BLAM! continues its tour in Italy from Monday 25 November through 14 December.
This week our Denmark Tour has come to Odense, where the city's three major theatres have collaborated to bring BLAM! here. Momentum, Den Fynske Opera and Odense Teater have all made it possible to produce four shows in the lovely capital of Funen. Opening night was great - with Eos Karlsson joining us all the way from Sweden as The Muscle Guy - and we're looking forward to BLAMMING Odense with three more shows, before moving on to Jutland next week.
On top of it all, this week BLAM! just played its show number 100! And it has all only just begun!
This week BLAM! continues touring Denmark with 5 shows at Teater Nordkraft in Aalborg. After a succesful totally sold out Aarhus run at Bora-Bora, we are looking forward to blamming Northern Denmark!
After a massively succesful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with about 15.000 sold tickets and audiences from all over the world, BLAM! will be returning to its hometown Vordingborg and the International Waves Festival, where we are giving ONE SHOW ONLY this Saturday 19:00 at Vordingborg Theatre! Hope to see you there!

The audience response is overwhelming, and reviewer Sally Stott from the national newspaper The Scotsman has given BLAM! a 5-star top-rating, stating that "You're unlikely to find a better way of starting your festival than this."
On Twitter.com @BLAMtheshow is also crowded by enthusiastic tweets from audience member, who have been BLAMMED away! Even tv-producer Charlie Hanson, the man behind popular tv-shows such as The Office, exclaims that "#blam is the sensation of this year's @edfringe"!

Fantastisk forestilling, den kan virkelig anbefales!- Skøn og dejlig - skør og uforudsigelig - pudsig og vedkommende.... TAK Kristjan og alle på scenen.
Tak for en noget anderledes oplevelse, som jeg ikke vil være foruden. Det greb mig meget, og efterlod mig faktisk noget trist, hvilket jeg ikke havde forventet, da du havde fortalt mig, at man grinede meget. OK, der var sjove indfald, men for mig var det: mennesket og ensomheden, hvordan vi prøver at opnå kontakt med andre, men ikke når hinanden, rutinerne, der udgør vores livs indhold, det overfladiske og lignende tanker, jeg tog hjem med. FLOTTE præstationer af alle, balletagtigt og virtuost udført, rå scenografi - og dybt tankevækkende! Tusind tak for oplevelsen.
Total fed oplevelse! Tak for et godt grin - og eftertænksomhed!
(Vi takker tilbage herfra!)
