Bob Downe ... Smokin'

The legendary Mark Trevorrow brings his comic masterpiece Bob Downe back to the Fringe for an amazing 16th Fringe run and boy does he deliver in spades.

The is pure cabaret fun and frolics at its very best with the king of the 70’s sounds taking his audience on an hour long romp with the chance to win prizes and an assortment of cards from his new range to cover any occasion. No stone is left unturned as he goes all out to please his audience and deliver a comic master class of timing, wit and an underlying charm which wins his audience over.

What really makes the show work is Trevorrow’s complete conviction in the Bob Downe character; he actually does live under that wig and ensures the mask is never slipped whilst playing the part. He makes it all seem so effortless and puts so much energy into his show which, as he reminds the audience, is difficult for a 53 year old. He also makes sure that a hen night had the night to remember and everyone is named checked several times.

His brand of comedy is fun, without being insulting and he never takes pot shots or uses shock tactics which is refreshing. Long live the king of polyester! Don't miss out!
