The Receptionists is a physical comedy show about customer service by two Finnish female clowns. The two receptionists are fast-talking smooth moving professionals in the hospitality industry. They speak multiple languages, none of which you can understand, and have an almost pathological fear of their customers. 

Impressively silly and exceptionally charismatic, Inga and Kristiina have a unique and hilarious chemistry which makes the whole experience delightfully bonkers. With exceptionally skilled smiling and some nifty acrobatics the clown duo shows how comical and absurd customer service can get.
