Do you have stupid and silly dreams at night? Well, Mr Sleepybum does, and he’s going to re-enact them all for you in this high-energy, interactive, kids’ comedy show for the whole family.

Mr Sleepybum awakes in his bed to find a room full of parents and children. A circus of silly sketches and dream scenes ensues, from swimming with sharks to solving the mystery of a stolen chocolate cake to dodging balls in the guise of the Cowboy Ball-Dodger. Mr Sleepybum’s imagination is limitless.

Mr Sleepybum is a multi-award-nominated, one-man, character comedy kids show, written and performed by character comedian Jody Kamali. Mr Sleepybum performed a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2023 and received rave reviews from the press and audiences.
