With “Make ‘Em Laugh!” QuickSilver weave a magical entertainment. . .a couple of hours of pure enjoyment from two outstanding professionals
Plumbland Village Hall Cumbria UK
From the first Savoy Operas of the 1870s Comedy was King and the jovial genius of Gilbert and Sullivan, through Music Hall, Joyce Grenfell, Noel Coward, Flanders and Swann, old Uncle Tom Lehrer and all and might be said to have raised its last belly-laughs with Jake Thackray, Richard Stilgoe and Victoria Wood in the 1980s.
Those hundred years of hilarity are brought back to life by QuickSilver for an evening of sparkling song-based entertainment
Together Grant and Hilary revive memories of the great stars (and a few acts who hardly made it above the printer’s credits) in a celebration of that great institution, the well-crafted comic song.
