Beloved by circus goers throughout the country, Scottish born Alan ‘Tweedy’ Digweed has cemented his popularity with a sellout theatre show.
Lost Property is a comedy about a clown who gives in to society and gets a real job.
Not knowing who he is anymore, Tweedy gets a job in a Lost Property Office to try and find himself. The consequences of attempting to run the office are hilarious – the lost property in his possession seem to develop lives of their own and allied with his own body rebelling against him he is constantly prevented from answering the ringing telephone.
In this one man, family show, Tweedy illustrates an impressive repertoire of comedic talents which have made him one of the most respected and popular clowns the country currently has to offer.

Reviews on Tweedy’s Lost Property
Tweedy understands the true nature of clowning, he communicates like a semaphore. David Shiner, Director of Cirque du Soleil
Tweedy creates physical comedy of a very high order. His prowess at manipulating objects so they seem to be alive and malicious is immense. All ages warm to him finding different parts of his act hilarious. There is sadness too, finding a use for or some joy in a piece of lost property is fatal as it is immediately reclaimed. Fringe Report
Lost Property – in which a circus clown takes a job in a lost-property office, naturally – is a prime example of that "fun for all the family" maxim. Yet it’s Tweedy’s sheer skill which leaves the greatest impression. He runs through a few sight gags, some expert juggling and miming and a spot of quite adequate musicianship with deceptive ease, yet the big set pieces are really spectacular. The Scotsman
Objects that appear non-human come to life and prevent Tweedy from answering the phone, keeping his hat on, or forcing him into a juggling act. Running gags of doorbells ringing and missed phone calls allowed the children to scream for Tweedy’s attention, proving he’s a master at his art. This show is a clever device to showcase Tweedy’s classic clowning skills. Edinburgh News
When this loveable buffoon pulled out juggling and balancing acts, plus a saxophone solo on a unicycle, I couldn’t help but be captivated. A lovely afternoon of entertainment for families, this man more than fills the big top with his adorable charisma. Threeweeks
