Bold brave live performance cooked up with a handful of hilarity, a splash of anarchy and a dollop of love.
A gaggle of clowns, fools, poets, story tellers, idiots, musicians and mischief makers; bound together by our belief that comedy is much more than just a laughing matter.
3 essential ingredients in every I Am Nincompoop recipe are
Laughter used generously to expose, inspire, unite, transform and connect
Failure warmly embraced and wrapped in love
Humanity lashings and lashings of it directly from source

WHO WE ARE
Lucy Harrington founded Nincompoop in January 2015 after graduating from Ecole Philippe Gaulier in June 2014 where she trained in physical theatre for 2 years. Lucy’s approach to theatre is open, honest and playful. She has a background in community work and has a knack of bringing people and inspirations together.
Lucy believes that the world is big and we are small but each of us has something unique to offer and that is our gift to the world. It is the journey of our lifetime to discover and share our gifts. Laughter, love, connection, honesty, safety, bravery and mayhem, these are the gifts that Lucy hopes to share with the creation of Nincompoop.
