The Raymond & Mr Timpkins Revue
"Joyous. Pretty irresistible"
"Knockabout double-act with enough silliness to fill a pillow"
THE EVENING STANDARD
An incredible double-act mixing daftness, music, nonsense, searing satire, and funny hats...
Cutting their teeth compering and performing in Comedy and Variety nights at The Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea, the nineties wafted gently past until, eventually and not before time, London called. With the fledgling post-fix, "Revue", added, they blasted the clubs with their Guitar and Stylophone stylings, wowing rooms with super slick prop manipulation, dazzling jaded eyes with sandal based choreography that remains inimitable.
Now, they tour the country, regularly headlining at Jongleurs clubs, even venturing as far afield as The Falklands and Oman, to provide spiritual uplift to the brave boys and girls of the armed forces.
Their latest foray is into radio comedy/drama. A 1930s murder mystery based in Brighton and a retellling of the Jack the Ripper tale have so far been forged in the red hot fires of their imaginations.
"A mad, anarchic triumph of stupidity over style. Not to be missed"
Helen Arney is a musical comedian based in London, performing original and unusually funny songs on ukulele and piano.
**** "Charming, witty and warm, with great one-liners" (The List)
**** "Harnesses the spirit of Ben Folds and the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon... delightful" (Chortle)
"Rising star of 2010" (spoonfed.co.uk)
Helen is an Edinburgh Fringe favourite with her offbeat style and warm musical whimsy. She's appeared at festivals such as Latitude, End Of The Road and Geek Pop, as well as Cheltenham Science Festival. Her current projects include a new show about a time travelling coffee shop, a collection of science-inspired songs called Geek Party and more musical collaborations with top UK comedians.
Likeable Welsh Londoner Rob Thomas is the one of the most prolific newcomers to the circuit - already known for his knack of mixing sharp one-liners with energetic physical humour. See him while we can still afford him.
Wayne The Weird
...aka Wayne Shakespeare, is a brilliant wizard with tricks and jokes alike. Prepare to be amazed, entertained, and enthralled.
"Outrageous comedian & magician" - The Southern Daily Echo
Compère: Matt Green

"Green is a stand-up audience's dream; his off-the-cuff jokes are so good they could have been scripted, and his clever prepared material is delivered so nonchalantly it could have been improvised. I ain't lyin', Matt Green is da bomb." FIVE STARS - Three Weeks
