This music hall comedy act provide a sing-a-long show in the finest British tradition. The chaps play a host of instruments such as accordion, ukulele, tuba and washboard. Also included are more bizarre instruments such as musical saw Chinese chastity bells and sheep. This is a very interactive show with all the lads in full costume and character throughout. The band have performed in practically every situation you can imagine and some that you couldn’t, or perhaps ought not to.

The Music Comedy Show were the house band for the award winning National Theatre show ‘The Masque of the Red Death’ that sold out for 9 months at Battersea Arts Centre. As well as shows for Wilton's Music Hall, Whoopee club, White Mischief and at the Blackpool Wintergardens, the chaps have presented their show to many taverns, private parties and weddings.

The usual line-up* is a quartet of 4 multi-instrumentalist singers:

Maestro Paul - accordion
Rupert - baritone ukulele and mandolin
Mr. Sandiford - double bass
Matty Blake - baby drum set

The show can be expanded up to seven musicians, with circus and variety acts too if required. We can also perform in smaller combinations, from duo upwards.

"The band were superb: universally admired. More than one person told me that they’d understood what music hall was all about for the first time."

Simon Callow

"Within a very short time everyone was joining in singing, clapping and laughing. At the end of the evening they were given a standing ovation and we all felt it was the best entertainment we have ever had at our annual function. I have been organising this event for the last 11 years and during that time we have had a wide range of acts but never anything quite so much fun."

Jennifer Moss, Mercury Computer Systems, 2011

"These fine chaps are quite magnificent - music hall entertainment from a bygone era crammed with interesting instruments and innuendo."
