The Kagools are a multi award-winning physical comedy duo from the UK. Starting out just three years ago, they’ve quickly gained fans far and wide with their unique brand of wordless (but far from silent), spontaneous, anarchic fun. An equally sought-after headline act both at home and overseas, their critically acclaimed shows have toured extensively, with recent international appearances including Australia, Norway and Vietnam.

John Ryan is irresistibly amiable and Edinburgh Highlight Award winner. John uses his acerbic wit and seemingly encyclopaedic knowledge of the world around him to keep any audience on their toes. His East End Irish upbringing gives him the rare ability to connect with people from diverse backgrounds.
