Potted Potter

Actors James Percy and Delme Thomas take on and take off the immense lexicon of all seven Harry Potter books in a scant 70 minutes during performances of the unofficial parody, Potted Potter, written and created by comedic duo and TV regulars Daniel Clarkson and Jeff Turner. James dons the signature glasses and wields the wand of the titular hero, his forehead scar replaced with a hastily scrawled “Harry,” and Delme plays each of the more than 300 other characters. He slips into a muscle suit and devil horns to portray Voldemort, dons a pointed wizard hat to take the role of headmaster Dumbledore, and controls a small puppet for the lovable elf Dobby. The comedy flows not only from the creators' interpretation of the series and their overactive humor glands, but also from the actors' onstage relationship, as resident wizard expert James becomes increasingly frustrated with Delme's tenuous knowledge of the source material and irresponsible use of the show's budget. The pair also engages the audience in an interactive game of the wizard sport, Quidditch. Potted Potter has earned accolades from the New York Times and Time Out London as well as a 2012 Olivier Awards nomination.
