"Clown Spencer Novich is genuinely, outrageously funny,
a quality rather rarer in circus than one would wish."
"Spencer Novich provides the comedic relief and is the stand-out performer: genuinely funny in a dark and twisted way,
and surprisingly original."
-The Daily Review AU
"And each [show] is stuffed with brazen and exceptional
performances. Novich and Hagan show off their
supernatural physical comedy skills in a bit with
a pantomimed baby that puts the entire audience
into hysterics punctuated by the occasional, “Oh my god.” "
-Las Vegas Weekly
"The highlight is the clowning from Spencer Novich,
who might be what happens if Heath Ledger’s Joker
and Robin Williams had a love child."
-ABC Arts - Australia
"The two stand-out artists of the evening shone brightly:
Anne-Caroline Boidin... and clown Spencer Novich,
whose impish character brought the devil to the dance.
Novich performed one of the truly mesmerising pieces
of the evening: a mime act lipsynched to samples and
clips from old films, educational programs, radio, music
and sound effects.... Novich’s character was one with
unique liveliness as he scuttled around the stage in a triangular cage."
-Rip It Up
"Each “canto,” as they call the shows,
is hosted by a ridiculously funny “family” and their servants...
Their outrageous antics provide a framework for the shows"
-Las Vegas Weekly
"Comedy genius Spencer Novich brings a
refreshing sense of wit and humor to the
performance through his mime and extraordinary
contortion numbers, which will have you gasping with disbelief."
-West End Wilma
"Spencer Novich‘s comedic elements were utterly hilarious"
-Film and TV NOW
"In a shock turn of events, it’s the clown who steals the show.
Rubber-limbed Spencer Novich,
who looks as if he's wandered in from
The Rocky Horror Picture Show, starts out playing the
virgin in the brothel. But when he struts his stuff,
it is simply mind-blowing.
His scratch edit comedy dance mime
fizzes like a firecracker, packing more into
three minutes than some shows manage in two hours.
My cork was well and truly popped."
-Metro Co UK
But the star of the show is undoubtedly Spencer Novich.
It seems unfair to call him a clown or a contortionist
- the two specialities he brings to the show -
because he really is so much more.
Even crouched on the corner of the stage, or standing in dim light
he manages to draw attention in the most lovely way.
His comedic timing is spot on
and his bendy, twisty, face and body is a delight
"Spencer Novich’s wiry body contortions were both amazing and grotesque,
like a train wreck you can’t seem to look away from.
In fact, the unassuming ring-master’s sidekick really pulled the show together..."
"...the star of the show is undoubtedly Spencer Novich,
the jester of sorts whose extreme characterization
includes mix of clowning and contortionism.
And his perfect delivery, again, of the same mimed monologue of sorts,
set to sound effects and samples
randomly mashed together from all range of sources,
is worth the repeat for its brilliance.
