Peepolykus is one of the UK’s most exciting theatre companies whose sublimely ridiculous style of anarchic comedy has been compared to The Marx Brothers, Buster Keaton and Monty Python. We are also educators working with schools, universities and businesses; directors working with the likes of Paul Merton and La Neve Bete; writers for radio and TV; physical comedy practitioners and workshop facilitators.
Here’s lots of different resources for you to enjoy, including films of some of our tours to places like Iran and Bangladesh and shorter clips of some of our most loved and most stupid physical routines. Lots more to come from the archive as we uncover all sorts of dusty old video and cassette tapes!
Please check back here for new resources for students and teachers that we are putting together now.

“Word of mouth has been so strong for Baskervilles that the Cincinatti Shakespeare Company has added Saturday matinees to accommodate audience demand for tickets” City Beat, Cincinatti
“…..Baskervilles is instantly funny and stays that way. It owes as much to Monty Python’s Flying Circus as it does to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle” Weekly Volcano, Washington State.

We are delighted to be continuing and developing our research work with colleagues at Kings College, London. We have submitted two funding bids with KCL, both of which focus on how improvisation techniques derived from theatre can help strengthen teacher agility and, in turn, help engage students in curriculum learning. We also welcome Bristol Cathedral Choir School, a thriving inner city Academy school who will be helping us develop the study in partnership with other secondary school teachers across the city.
