The Most Dangerous Cup of Tea In The World
by Tit for Tat
Co-Created and Performed by Louis Lamprell and Ryan Murphy, This project had humble beginnings as a traditional circle show, before evolving into a cabaret format, and finally into a full length Circus Theatre show aimed towards the Outdoor Arts. Ryan and Louis owe their UK-Wide celebration of absurdity to the support of many, with a special thanks to Kate Hazel (Winchester Hat Fair), Matthew Feerick (Wet Picnic), and Matt Pang (Pangottic) for their personal support and unrelenting enthusiasm towards the project’s development.
Tit for Tat is an unusual juggling company that believes in celebrating the ordinary. We take ordinary objects, objectives and scenes, and we explore every nook and cranny until we make them extra-ordinary. We believe in finding the most exciting and, more often than not, the most difficult way of getting from A to B. Even when undertaking simple tasks such as making a cup of tea, painting a wall, or changing a lightbulb.
Please enjoy the videos below, showing the project in its various stages! Why not make an explosive and death-defying cuppa whilst you’re at it? Because remember… tea only tastes good, if you almost die making it.

Unbuckle your seatbelt and switch on the kettle… (preferably with a mallet)
The Most Dangerous Cup of Tea in Ten Minutes! (Cabaret Variant)
Ryman & Lou present a spoken indoor variation of their ‘Danger Tea’ act

Ryman & Lou, Gentleman Jugglers
In the early days, when Ryman wasn’t Kev, and Lou wasn’t Rick.
What they lacked in tea, they made up for by juggling walking sticks, hats, hatstands, chairs, tables and even each other
One day they both nearly died making a cup of tea.
It changed them forever.
