Potted Potter: The Unauthorised Harry Experience — A Parody by Dan and Jeff is a Harry Potter stage show parody that combines the elements of the original books from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into a seventy-minute stage production. The programme began as a skit to keep London shoppers entertained while they waited for copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in 2005[1] and in 2006 was developed into a fully-staged show by its creators Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner working with theatre producer James Seabright.[2]

Potted Potter was created by BBC television hosts Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner. The production has toured successfully in Edinburgh, Scotland and in a number of venues throughout the United Kingdom and the wider world, including a number of West End seasons culminating in a 2012 Olivier Award nomination[3] as "Best Entertainment and Family Show" for its 2011 season at the Garrick Theatre. It opened its North American debut season at Toronto's Panasonic Theatre in February 2012, and in November 2012, it began a tour in Chicago, Illinois in the United States.[4]

The production has a comedic tone and is promoted with the pitch "Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter." The production has received glowing reviews from a number of major media sources, including The London Times, The New York Times, and the Toronto Star.[5]
