And when It inhabits a giant Paul Bunyan statue in front of a horrified Bill Hader, this might as well have been pulled directly from an episode of SNL. As a physical performer, Pennywise is hands-down one of the best, delivering a performance that is up there with Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura or even Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times.
Just look at the way It distorts its face—eyes crossing in both directions, tongue lolling out, drooling, and giggling. It can shapeshift, so, unlike the mainstream legends of screen comedy, Pennywise's impressions aren't limited by a physical form. This makes for a comedic presence that is both unpredictable and unique. We see Pennywise act as a dancing, naked old lady. We see It as a vomiting leper in the basement of a pharmacy.
It even becomes a cute little Pomeranian, who first appears to be nice and good, until it transforms into a repulsive evil dog beast. All comedians know that, to work in comedy, you've got to be funny in any room, in any situation. This is the kind of golden-age Three Stooges dedication you just don't see anymore. As in classic silent comedy tradition, It Chapter Two is based around a series of sight gags. The supporting cast's search for MacGuffin totems simply acts as a vehicle for Mr.
P to go to work. In one scene we see It set up a classic comedy scenario, giving two characters three doors to choose from: One that says "Not Scary," one that says "Very Scary," one that says "Scary. It's a fantastic farce set-piece that has the long-term pay-off of the aforementioned puppy punchline.
This demonic clown's love of fun and frivolity is fully contagious, as I felt myself laughing along in glee anytime Pennywise began to play. The clown even succeeds as an insult comic, riffing on the main characters any chance it gets. It's reasons like this that convince me that Stephen King's entire It franchise is actually about a sad comedian who just wants an excuse to perform. The room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The location was great, as there was a metro station and trams nearby.
The walk into old town was about 20 minutes. The city map provided upon my arrival was extremely helpful because it highlighted the main attractions and had the tram and metro stops on it. I would stay here again. Staff are so friendly and good fun! But overall very nice one!
Very friendly staff, perfect location, worth the price! The room had a window to the street, which was a bit of a bummer at night when tried to sleep. When we arrived to the hostel, we were welcomed with a smiling face from a good man. He immediately asked us how was our travel there, took care of us. Explained about how the hostel works in a good way. During our stay we were given some advices by the staff on where to go. Breakfast is cheap and pretty satisfying. Rooms are clean and warming.
Very nice property. Could use a bit better pillows. The location, atmosphere, and staff were all excellent. The only inconvenience that we have experienced were very thin walls. You can hear every word in the rooms of the other guests. It can be really troublesome when neighbors next door like to party and they doesn't respect the rule to behave quiet after The personel of Clown and Bard hostel is top notch! Very supportive in every aspect. They are more than happy to help you.
Placement near beautiful districts of Prague which are not so crowded by tourists - go check Vinohrady and Zizkov. This hostel is perfect for people who likes to go on whole day trips and need only a place to sleep. Toilet bowl location is too narrow. Struggling to make a log. Didnt know the hostel is up the hill. Tired hauling luggages up the hill from a tram station. Great location, close to the touristy areas but at the same time quiet and with a real local vibe.
A walk up the hill to the tower and Prague 2 is definitely worth it. Quite cold and empty room. Thin walls. Very friendly and helpful people ; We could leave our luggages as long as we wanted and everything was ok! It is also open 24 hours a day. Also only one hand towel for whole apartment and one bath towel per person no towel to put on the floor No elevator to the top floor 5th. Very original and interesting reception hall with lots of common space, bar and bar games.
Also good location, small shop next door and many pubs and restaurants. Kitchen sink with cutlery, plates and electric kettle.
Nice and helpful staff. No elevator :. People at the reseption were very helpful and nice. Location is good, 20 minutes walk distance to the main railway station. It's near the metro and tram stations and easy to reach to the airport by public transportation. Me and my friend stayed there for 3 full days. We enjoyed everything about this place! First of all I have to say few good words about the staff. Polite, helpful and what is the most important they could perfectly communicate in english.
Room was situated on the first floor. Beds were comfortable, fully accessed with a wifi no distribution , bathroom clean and open all the time. There is also a kitchen where you can prepare your meal suitable to your needs. We highly recommend this place.
Ideal location, in a lesser-known but very happening part of town. I was surprised that the staff spoke hardly any Czech, even though we were in Prague.

Also, I warn anyone from getting a yellow room as it is directly above the entrance to the hostel and you can literally hear everyone and everything from outside. Even when the window is closed. And there were quite a few people drinking and shouting on the night that I was staying there. I ended up changing the room at 1AM as I could not sleep. In addition to this, I had quite a few bites on my body, so I hope these were not from bed bugs!! The hostel is located within half an hour walking distance from Prague's main train station.
You have to walk up a quite a steep hill though. The staff were friendly. There was too much noise. Noises at night from outside the window made it hard to sleep. But I guess that's not the hostel's fault. A bunch of people were drinking and talking very loud. Error: Please enter a valid email address. Error: Oops! An error has occurred.
