Knightmare Live – “Enter, Stranger…”
Last year we went to see Knightmare Live at the Lowry, and I don’t know why I never wrote about it back then.
For those of you born in the 80’s you will surely remember the kids TV show, Knightmare. For me, this was one of my favourites, we even used to try and recreate it in the playground, with some kid putting a bucket on their head, but it was never quite the same.
Now I get to relive one of my favourite childhood shows, revived and reworked to appeal to the now adults who remember it so fondly.
Knightmare Live is based on the kids show, but updated to appeal to it’s now 30 year old fans, and it does a superb job. Surprisingly the show also attracts people who have never seen the original kids TV version, but when Treguard tells the audience that;
Someone in a helmet is going to walk out onto stage and say, ” where am I?” These guys are going to say, “you’re in a room”. At this point, the audience is going to go tits….
He certainly isn’t wrong!
With the perfect mix of childhood nostalgia and adult humour, Knightmare Live is definitely a show to look out for!Thanks for reading!
