Somehow Lorraine got persuaded to do one of those awful TV talent shows, where she caused a bit of a sensation with this here song. Marching onto the stage with her Casio organ, and using an ironing board as a keyboard stand, away she went… “everybody’s good at cooking something — and I’m good at cooking crumble, in fact I’ve got one in the oven… would you like some”… and the look on the judges faces was priceless
Steve Rawlings has broken down the barriers between stand up comedy and physical theatre, creating a wonderfully entertaining blend of comedy character, and technical ability that keeps an audience on the edge of their seats. His performance is packed full of original routines such as furniture juggling with a chair, table and vase of flowers (he is the only person in the world to do this!), setting fire to his head, and juggling ping pong balls with his mouth. All of this is overlaid with a level of stand up comedy that any comedian would be proud of.
“Hilarious & Original”
Manic idiot violinist Sid Bowfin is the classical musician the world has been waiting for - the missing link in the classical DNA! Unpredictable, unhinged, unique. Full of the music you love! And some you probably hate. Mozart, Vivaldi, Rossini, Pachelbel, Dexy's Midnight Runners – he knew them all. Great music (played surprisingly well), and audience banter - he loves to get to know his audience, sometimes more intimately than is appropriate, and seeks out fellow lovers of classical music to help him spread his joy. You have been warned…
Your cabaret was a riot from start to finish! Enthralling, ingenious, and extremely witty, it totally captivated both the young and older brethren. It really was a masterclass in musical dexterity and mimicry. The totally spontaneous, rapturous and lengthy standing ovation was well deserved!
