⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A masterful, weird, poignant, gut-busting, vulnerable, and thought-provoking tour de force from Candy Bones Theatre”- Cincinnati Fringe

“I don’t transcend in the theatre on a regular basis, but Larry opened me up and took me to a higher plane. Roberts’s clowning technique is first-rate — once she gets you laughing, she will not fucking let up.”– Colin Thomas – Simply the Best of 2019

This superior, adult-oriented clowning comedy is far deeper than it first appears. It’s funny, weird and telling — with something important to say.”- Orlando Weekly

A bare-bones, outrageously funny send-up and exploration of gender, gender roles, masculinity, stereotypes and affirmation”René Grayre, Show-score, NYC

“Robert’s is a PRO Clown- she nails it in a way that had me GUT laughing for the entire performance.”- Riot Mueller, New Orleans Box Office

“This is a daring, weird, hilarious show with head banging, so basically everything you could want.” —the Georgia Straight

 “GO SEE THIS F*CKING SHOW. I laughed so hard I cried, and then I cried some more—for entirely different reasons.“- #YEGARTSINREVIEW

“a highly skilled physical comedian, and, as you’ll see in the course of Larry, her bravery is virtually unlimited” – Liz Nichols https://12thnight.ca/

“A fearless performer”– CBC

⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Impressive theatrical understanding and an enormous amount of social context”- Winnipeg Free Press

Larry wants to prove that he can be woke enough for the empowered woman of his desires but, in a moment of accidental transcendence, he uncovers a startling surprise in his own psyche. Candice Roberts’s solo clown show LARRY is a complex and outrageously funny exploration of character including the extremes and limitations of the gender binary.

With dance, clown and physical theatre, award-winning artist Candice Roberts uses her alter ego LARRY to explore her experiences growing up as a female in rural B.C. in the 1980s. Culled from the socially dominant, homophobic male archetypes that surrounded her during her upbringing, Larry helps her embrace her upbringing —and makes people laugh.
