SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE PRESENTS
"Brilliantly funny" - Matt Lucas, Little Britain
Starring Mark Trevorrow
With special guest Pastel Vespa
Musical Director John Thorn & band
After the big-theatre success of 'iBob' in 2005, Bob Downe is back where he belongs: up-close, in cabaret, singin' and swingin' a silky swathe and jazz, pop and show standards! In Live & Swingin', Bob is joined by a fabulous group of musicians led by Musical Director John Thorn, and featuring the lovely Pastel Vespa.
Direct from his sell-out success at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Bob's new show is a tribute to the Fifties and Sixties era of smooth, elegant, exciting nightclub entertainment… when artists such as Liza Minnelli, Peter Allen, Wayne Newton and the incomparable Frances Faye thrilled audiences in legendary supper clubs like Chequers and the Silver Spade. In 2007, the plush Sydney Opera House Studio is the perfect place to recreate such a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere.
Bob Downe, born 1984 and still going strong, is the comic creation of broadcaster and entertainer MARK TREVORROW. Catch cheeky, irreverent, outrageous Bob at his best before he heads off to Edinburgh for his 13th Festival appearance.
Five shows only, so book fast to avoid disappointment!
Duration - Seventy five minutes.
