The List

‘Kids are riotously entertained’

Three Weeks

'Kamali’s connection with his audience is commendable. While kids erupted in bouts of laughter at the side-splitting dream scenes, adults found themselves chuckling at the subtly crafted jokes meant just for us, and gleefully joining in the onstage antics. Managing this dynamic isn’t easy, but Mr Sleepybum does it flawlessly, ensuring everyone has their slice of fun.'
