Snake Boy was raised for 18 years by a family of red-bellies in the Australian Outback. Snake Boy knows what it is to be 'snake'. Now Snake Boy wants to learn. To learn what it is to be 'boy'. Teach him language, teach him love and compassion. Teach him arms and legs.

Snake Boy is an award-winning show that Alex has been touring and workshopping over the last year, experimenting with finding new ways to push the boundaries of audience interaction and participation. 

Winner of the Adelaide Fringe 2019 Weekly Award for Best Newcomer. 

Winner of the Adelaide Fringe 2019 New Zealand Tour Ready Award.

"This intensely interactive performance is a joy to watch and participate, Richmond’s terrific timing, physical comedy and self-awareness accompanied with this inventive concept, keep his audience enraptured throughout" - Collage Adelaide (4 stars)

"Alexander is both sympathetic and unnerving as The Marvellous Snake Boy, and therein lies the charm" - Radio Adelaide.  

"Richmond's performance also shines...It's a singular performance that really helps to sell the ridiculous weirdness of the show" - Great Scott Media. 

"Lightly interactive, Richmond has a knack for unthreatening participation, playfully getting us to guide his linguistic and motor skill development" - Fest Mag. 

"This is an interactive show and no one should feel nervous about sitting in the front row. Alex has constructed a character and a comedy show that does not pick on the audience. He draws them and has lots of fun with them" - Sydney Arts Guide.
