Solo comedy song entertainment

   

By George! image

‘By George! - Michael casts a witty eye on the subject of Englishness in this intimate revue of comedy songs. Alongside musical offerings from Noel Coward, Gilbert and Sullivan, Flanders and Swann and other masters of the comedy song, Michael includes some contributions to the genre from his own pen.  
   

Quirkish delight image

‘Quirkish Delight’ - Michael serves up for your delectation a confection of deliciously witty comedy songs. The entertainment is timeless, quintessential musical cabaret, drawing on the very finest comedy songs in the English language, from both sides of the Atlantic, from Tom Lehrer to Noel Coward, Cole Porter to Flanders and Swann, including some of Michael’s own compositions.

 
   
Coward at Sea image
Coward at Sea - Come aboard the SS Madeira for this nautical musical comedy featuring, for the first time on stage, Noel Coward's 'P&O 1930', his magical evocation of the historic P&O route home to Britain from the Far East, when a voyage took weeks rather than hours and the passengers got up to all sorts of antics en route.  
 
Tickling the Ivories Tickling the Ivories - Following on from his highly successful comedy song revues “By George!” and ‘Quirkish Delight’, Michael presents this potted ‘history’ of the comedy song, mining the archives from the 1870’s to the 1970’s, from Gilbert and Sullivan to Tom Lehrer, from Music Hall to Monty Python.  
 
Flanders and Swann Revisited Flanders and Swann Revisited - Michael performs from the piano (and everywhere else!) an evening of musical comedy featuring the songs of Flanders and Swann and the poetic wit of Sir John Betjeman.

Michael offers the perfect antidote, or complement, to the after-dinner speech: timeless, quintessential cabaret - one man, a bow tie, a piano, and some of the finest comedy songs in the English language. From Coward to Tom Lehrer, Flanders and Swann to Cole Porter, together with lesser-known gems and Michael's own contributions to the genre.
