Andy & Mike’s Tick Tock Time Machine
Sunday 19th January 2014 Theatre Royal, Windsor
A Sunday afternoon delight is what this show is, featuring Andy Day (of Cbeebies fame including Andy’s Wild Adventures) and Mike James (he’s done TV ads and works in IT!), who have teamed up to produce the Tick Tock Time Machine show. The shows premise is that Mike and Andy discover a time machine (or a toilet in a shower cubicle!) invented by Andy’s great, great, great grandfather Wally Bum. The duo travel back in time to medieval times and into the future where they do a good sketch on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
Like any good kids show it is very energetic, features audience participation (a mum and a dad will be picked as extra cast helpers), jokes/bad puns and sing-a-long songs. The main success of the show is the how well Andy and Mike team-up, with the funniest parts often coming via the ad libs when Andy forgot to move a prop off stage and later forgot his lines. Mike had a good natured pop at Andy’s Cbeebies career to date and many children would have left to return home singing the catchy but annoying Baby Bel song.
My son is five and enjoyed it a lot, joining in with all the actions and the best recommendation I can give it is that, when he got home he got his soft toys out as the audience and did his own version of the show. He was even more delighted after the show with his photograph taken with the pair and a signed bookmark.
The show is touring throughout the year and it may even be make it as a future programme on Cbeebies.
