"PROBABLY THE BEST COMEDY SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER, MAYBE."
with Pat Abernethy and Dave Marsden
Premiered at The Yvonne Arnaud Mill Studio, Guildford
This brand new show by Isosceles is their 11th at the Mill.
This one does exactly what it says on the tin, possibly - a host of comedy songs covering a number of years by a host of great names....and a few surprises.
Songs from the likes of :-
Stan Freeberg, the Pythons, Tom Lehrer, Pete and Dud, Lonnie Donegan, Bernard Cribbins, Tom Paxton, Richard Digance, The Goons, Kenneth Williams, Benny Hill, Noel Coward, George Formby, Chris de Burgh, Flanders and Swan, Alan Sherman, Robb Wilton, Noel Murphy.... and many more.
Pat and Dave will attempt all of this with just the aid of a piano and whatever talent they can muster. If you are looking for a serious dramatic evening, then this is not for you: if you want to see grown men having fun at their own expense, and maybe yours, then step right up.
‘’Masterful....an evening of consistent laughter.’’ TIME OUT
‘’An exceptional gift for comedy that had us rolling in the aisles.’’ THE SCOTSMAN

This show is brilliant - simple as that!
Wonderful, lovely, great fun.
We had a ball, we really did....you were both tremendous, over and above word perfection, timing, synchronicity and other stuff of that ilk.
I'm 38 and my friend's daughter is only 13 but we were all howling from start to finish. What a laugh we had, you two are brilliant....I would come and see that show again, the three of us would. Thanks for a great night and hope to see you back here very soon.
I attended your show last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I could have listened to you for days. Keep up the good work.
We had a great time - I really think you two have made a very good show and it was a pleasure to hear your selections.
Congrats on last night - Excellent show. Nice gesture to include a Rob Wilton monologue for all the teenagers in the audience.
Last night was great- well done. Everyone loved it and want to come to your next show.
Brilliant, most enjoyable!
I didn't think it was going to my sort of thing but I enjoyed every minute of it.
What a fab evening thank you...and my God can Dave play the old Joanna or what...look forward to the next one.
Pat Abernethy and the mighty Dave Marsden gave us a great, cheery evening last night. Thank you Isosceles.
It was a great evening and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thank you so much for the fantastic show - everyone loved it. You are such talented guys and you gave us such a treat.
Thanks for a lovely show, Claire thought it was super.
I thought it was very enjoyable.
Hey, you two - that was f***ing brilliant!
What a fun night out. It was like hearing these classic songs for the first time - hilarious!
I wasn't sure I would ever hear 'Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its' Flavour' performed live ever again - such a poignant song!
