Rhymes of the Times 2011

It’s happened once before. Last July I was performing on a barge and was upstaged by … the resident parrot:

Yesterday I was performing in Poppleton, and was upstaged by … a musical tie! Yes, ’tis the season to be jolly, and so Mr Chris Spencer decided to get into the festive spirit by sporting his best novelty Christmas tie to my Rhymes of the Times show. Only he accidentally nudged said tie into action during my show – much to the hilarity (once we’d tracked down the source of the ‘music’) of the rest of us! Take a listen …

I performed two Rhymes of the Times shows this week, in which I ran through the events of the past year in satirical poems.  The surprise hit of both shows was one of my February poems, entitled ‘Sports Thoughts’, which you can hear here:

Thank you to everyone who welcomed me so warmly at King’s Manor (where I’d performed my Rhymes of the Times in 2009) and Poppleton Arts (where I’d previously performed my Buzzing! show).

Feedback from both this week’s shows was great:

‘Brilliant!’

‘Made me forget all my aches and pains!’

‘Really, really lovely!’

‘I enjoyed it immensely!’

‘Utterly enjoyable’

‘Wonderful’
