I didn´t expect much, as I´ve always thought translating this beautiful and witty Czech humour into English is impossible. Well...could not be more wrong! The guys managed to stay on script whilst also staying extremely funny in Cimrman´s way. I think as a foreigner you...More

I have now seen all three of the Cimrman productions translated into English. They are hilarious, very well acted and well worth a visit. Czech humor but I think easy to understand by all nationalities.
