British Comedy Night
October 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$40
International talents, Larry Larkin and Glyn Bailey will be entertaining us with their antics! Feel free to dress as your favorite British Comedian… Mr. Bean, Russell Brand, Monty Python come to mind!
Larry was born in Gigglesworth in the English county of Comicsville. He is convinced that he has only had one birthday because he says he’s only been born once. However, rumor has it that his father was Charlie Chaplin’s great grandad!
Larry holds a PhD in Jokology from the University of Gaggingham and he has never dropped it once! This one of a kind comedian knows exactly how to tickle everyone’s funny bone with his infectious brand of humor. Larry’s comic genius has been seen and enjoyed internationally on British TV and in comedy clubs and theaters, as well as major cruise lines from Great Britain to the USA. Always tasteful and always hilarious, he is a seasoned performer who will have any audience rolling in the aisles. No one is immune from the effects of this man’s zany hysterical personality. When awarded a Knighthood by Queen Elizabeth recently, he didn’t know whether to lick the back of her head or shake her hand, as the only time he had seen her before was on a stamp!
They say laughter is the best medicine, so don’t miss this very special night of British fun and frolic with Master of Mirth, Dr. Larry Larkin. Larry will be joined by English Tea Room regular, British singer and composer, Glyn Bailey.
Glyn enjoyed a successful career on the London stage in such shows as the original West End production of Evita. This was followed by a 17 year career on cruise ships as a headline act, piano vocal entertainer and cruise director with such cruise lines as Royal Viking, Seabourn and Radisson Seven Seas – to name but a few. He has also held corporate management positions with Silversea Cruises and Delta Queen Steamboat Company.
Glyn is very proud to have been appointed Composer-in-Residence for Jefferson Performing Arts Society (JPAS). After the success of the 2009 JPAS production of SCANDALOUS! (Glyn’s original musical based on the life of the notorious English novelist, D.H. Lawrence which won the 2010 Marquee Theater Award for Best Original Musical), the show received its London West End debut in October of 2013 – to great critical acclaim.
Other original works in the pipeline include The Wildest Dream – a musical which tells the heroic story of British mountaineer, George Mallory, and his quest to be the first man to conquer Mount Everest. Glyn is proudly half Welsh and he is also working on a show called The Wonder of Wales which features some of his original songs about Wales, as well as, some traditional Welsh favorites.
Glyn and his wife, Anne run Cruise Artistes International; one of the world’s top providers of entertainment to the cruise industry.
Glyn is delighted to play and sing for you every Thursday (12pm-2pm) at The English Tea Room & Eatery. Please stop by and say hello!
