Clive Webb and Danny Adams are the masters of Mayhem entertaining audiences around the country. You can find little bit more information about them here.
Born in Sunderland, Clive started his show business career as a drummer in a pop group. After a year had passed and a serious lack of bookings – and food – Clive answered an advert for a drummer in the Famous Robert Bros Circus where he stayed for seven years ending up as head clown. After leaving the Circus he auditioned for Opportunity Knocks. He came second but was fortunately seen by Michael Hurl, a well-known TV producer. There followed many TV guest appearances including: Seaside Special, Game for a Laugh, Make Me Laugh, Crackerjack, The Sooty Show, Ronnie Corbett’s Thursday Special and the famous Junior Royal Command Performance at the London Palladium. He was also resident on Razzamatazz, How Dare You, Rolf on Saturday(with Rolf Harris) and spent 3 years on Tiswas, all of which were long running series. In 1988 Clive reached another pinnacle of his career – he became British Magical Champion – the first time a comedy magician has ever won this prestigious award. Clive and Danny are, in fact, father and son, so the fact that Danny was almost born in a dressing room enabled him to start his show business career early. This early start and an absolute passion for show business, his incredibly high energy level, and his natural zany
My Job is to make people laugh
Danny’s TV appearances include GMTV’s Mole in a Hole (series of 26), Stars in Their Dressing Rooms, Angus Deaton’s It Shouldn’t Happen to a TV Presenter The Tweenies. Danny enjoyed great success at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool, with Cannon and Ball in the summer spectacular Comedy Bonanza in 2002. Over the past years they have toured extensively in various different venues from Holiday Parks for Butlins/Haven, to Theatre and Cabaret Venues the length and breadth of the country and in 2001 starred in Zippo’s Circus, the UK’s largest circus. More recently they have toured all over the UK and Europe with their own Circus Hilarious and spent five years in the summer season spectacular in Great Yarmouth at the Famous Hippodrome Circus. During 2008, Danny performed the very dangerous Houdini’s Milk Churn Escape and is currently trying to perfect the Human Cannonball as his alter ego Captain Splat. After performing in pantos all over the country, they have returned to the Theatre Royal, Newcastle upon Tyne, for the last five panto seasons where Geordies and Machems alike have taken them to their hearts. They are proud to have been jointly awarded the CFA Best Comedy Act 2007 and Danny was also runner up in the Journal Culture Awards for Performance of the Year 2008.
He killed the pigeon
When Michael Potts was born, he was the youngest person in the Michael spends most of his time working with his Father (Clive) and Brother (Danny) in his family’s show, Circus Hilarious. In his time in Circus Hilarious he has gained no skills of note and even after 15 years of trying, still cannot juggle. Outside of business, Michael has done several proper jobs, badly.These include butcher, baker and candlestick maker. All of which he has left in disgrace. He was four years old when Clive first forced him onto stage in a pantomime in Blackpool, he wept for several days before and afterwards and was not keen on the idea at all, but Clive was persistent and still forces a tearful Michael onto stages the length and breadth of the country to this very day. He is delighted to be able to part of Screaming with Laughter.
He's the man who can fly
Being Clive’s youngest son, Jonny was literally born into show business. From a young age Jonny toured the country with his father and brothers appearing for the first time on stage in a heart costume (Don’t ask). Jonny has had the pleasure of touring Haven, Butlins and not to mention, nearly every Theatre in the country. Jonny made his first solo appearance at the age of 17 in Snow White at the Blackburn Thwaites Theatre. At the age of 19 Jonny performed the extremely dangerous Straight Jacket Escape at the world famous Hippodrome Circus. He was shackled from his ankles and hoisted up into the ceiling with only 60 seconds to escape! Jonny also studied at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts where he picked up his BA Hons Acting degree. After graduating he has appeared in such prestigious venues as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Bristol Old Vic and of course Newcastle Theatre Royal.
