PLUS SOME FIRST TIME VIEWS ON MY NEW SHOW:
Michael Brooks from Absolute Brighton Magazine:
If you haven't seen one of Paul Vickers 'Twonkey's shows at the Fringe look him up. He is a clever wordsmith weaving magical madcap tales of nonsense with child like glee, and he can sing too. My friend's face cringing as she was asked to select one of the many pairs of fortune telling knickers hanging from a ship's wheel it was wonderful to see. Aftershow counselling may be required. Check him out! Vicker's is also now a novelist and I can't wait to read the strange result. Broadway Baby from a Laughing Horse Pick of the Fringe Review: The night experienced a curve ball with the next guest, the enigmatic and inebriated Paul Vickers. An absolute loon of a comedian, Vickers steered the audience with The Wheel of Early Sexual Experiences, draped with curious tales of sexy snails on the beach at Great Yarmouth and masturbating on the main mast.His insistence to not make any sense is refreshing in a world of same-y observational comedy.Rowan Dent.
Brighton Source had this to say: Mr Twonkey’s utterly peculiar Fringe appearances are nigh on unmissable, a morbid combination of music, puppetry and audience participation landing somewhere between Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out and Michael Bentine’s Potty Time. Without wishing to spoil the illusion, you might care to know that Twonkey himself is actually an alter ego of Paul Vickers, perhaps more widely known as frontman with Scottish Peel show favourites Dawn Of The Replicants. A frequently side-splitting, slightly unsettling flight of imagination.Stuart Huggett.
