“A roaring success” (http://www.emptyfrontrow.wordpress.com)
I co-host/run the unique era-themed comedy night Cabarera with fellow character comedian Rebecca Shorrocks.
“What kept such a mixed sobriety crowd upright and focussed was the enthusiastic MCing of Harrison as a bitter yet accurate pastiche of Timmy Mallet and an effervescent Shorrocks as a dementedly innocent Michaela Strachan….All this and a game of Mallets Mallet was worth the admission price alone.”
(From a review of our first ever Cabarera: 1980’s night. http://www.emptyfrontrow.wordpress.com)
Cabarera (formerly at The Vandella) has now found a brand new home at The Miller, London Bridge http://www.themiller.co.uk
Cabarera has become a firm favourite with vintage lovers and comedy lovers alike and has played host to numerous acts. Here are a few examples of some favourites; sketch groups (The Beta Males, Kwat, Vinegar Knickers), character comedians (Pippa Evans, Trodd En Bratt, Jamie Glassman), card tricksters (Javier The Card Ninja), true alternative comedians (Michael Brunstrum, Holly Burn), improvisation groups (Scratch, The Inflatables) musicians (Skiffle and the Piffles, The Fircones) and even some puppetry burlesque courtesy of the very talented puppeteer Aya Nakamura.
Every month Cabarera is hosted by myself and Rebecca whose era-specific roles have included Timmy Mallet & Michaela Strachan, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, Queen Victoria and a pauper, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh to pick out a few.
If you would like to come and review Cabarera do let us know and we’d be happy to arrange complimentary tickets. We promise we will show you a good (era specific) time!
