★★★★★ Winnipeg Free Press
“Malkin’s vocals will rip your heart out.” -London Free Press
Aaron Malkin was four years old when his mother disappeared off the face of the Earth. The adults in his life told him all sorts of stories to explain what happened. But those stories didn’t seem to add up. So he made up his own. It is amazing. There is a giant.
Thunderfoot is an autobiographical fairy tale: an adventure into the imagination of a wondrous child.
Transcending physical comedy and redefining physical story-telling, Malkin plays all parts—big and small—of this Hans Christian Anderson-inspired fairy tale, with a little help from the fanatic villagers—the audience.
Thunderfoot was nominated BEST COMEDY by Just for Laughs.
