Dinner Ladies

Good-time girls Freda and Rita are on hand to serve up a large dollop of foodie fun from their gorgeous gingham-clad serving trolley.

Their culinary capers will entertain and their giant turkey will wow the crowds. From fingernail checks to orderly line (dancing) these luscious ladies will spread their healthy eating message using comedy, music and dance. So remember to eat your five a day… two chocolate oranges, two toffee apples and a helping of Black Eyed Peas!

Comedy Waiters

This dinner service delight combines silent comedy and graceful slapstick to great effect. We begin with the odd plate flip or sculpted napkin until, with a flick of their bow-ties, our undercover comedians reveal their true colours to your food festival, city street or ambassador’s ball.

To a rousing soundtrack of all time classics, they evoke the genius of Morecambe and Wise and conjure adolescent admiration with a hilarious boyband homage. In the theatrical finale, rain cascades from umbrellas, with beautiful choreography performed to ‘Singing in the Rain’. Completely self contained, with a wheeled trolley ready to roll on any terrain, this act is versatile and utterly charming.

Culinary Capers

This culinary themed show will have audiences spellbound, as Ian Marchant- clad in chef’s whites-

performs feats with fruit, shows versatility with vegetables, launches legumes, chucks crockery, balances baguettes and displays plenty of daring deeds with dishes!

Using audience participation, comedy, skill and a menu of tricks, this show always cooks up a storm.
N.B. No fruit or vegetables are harmed during the performance (though some may be slightly bruised).
