TO&ST award nominee for best cabaret Edinburgh fringe 2013. “Makes Edward Lear sound like the Six O’ Clock news” Kate Copstick TO&ST judge. Mr.Twonkey has this to say about his new show: Before the Internet on days out in Whitby I would have a lot of fun playing with the fish and chip paper making a vinegar mask. I would spend all my pocket money on a huge bottle of vinegar and soak the mask. Meanwhile under the coarse damp paper my face was beetroot red and aggravated. The sea serpents would circle like vultures hungry for fish and chips. That's when I had the idea that I would love to run my own restaurant called 'The Salivating Sea Serpent’. So here we are and we’ve got soup of the month and catch of the fortnight. We are busy as a corpse opening times only when we are feeling cheeky. “A surrealist’s wet dream” ★★★★ The Skinny. "A true comic original' ★★★★The Scotsman. The Lovechild of Brian Blessed and Betty Boop give's you his new tasty vision. Mr.Twonkey AKA Paul Vickers is mad as cricket bat and fast as a silver hare. Its surreal act of twisted songs, adult fairytales and games that feature elaborate props.
