Don’t Mention The War!” – A Fawltie Towers Troupe Tribute Show 3 hour call including a 2 x 30 minute roving sets (meet, greet, seat then general roving/mingling between other entertainment sets/speeches etc.), followed later in the evening by a 1 x 20 minute focussed set. Featuring Basil Fawltie, Sybil Fawltie & Manuel.
Set in the ubiquitous Torquay hotel of just some 20 rooms, a bar and a somewhat “unusual” dining room, guests will have a chance to get up close and personal with three of the funniest characters in television history. Basil, Sybil and Manuel meet, greet and seat the guests in their own unique style – the acerbic, irascible Basil; the (at times) overly familiar Sybil who tries to keep things under control and the hapless Manuel for whom order is as foreign as his accent. Featuring those golden moments from “Fawlty Towers” well loved by people the world over, just be careful and “don’t mention the war!”
The “Fawltie Towers Tribute Trio” is led by award winning Blair Martin, who has had over 20 years’ experience as a professional actor and has played the role of Basil to great and sustained acclaim in Australia, Norfolk Island, Hong Kong, the UK and Ireland, gathering reviews such as “do not try to out-funny this man” (Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2010) while other international reviewers also praised his performance, “…played brilliantly…looking the part with his lean, towering figure…” (Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland). This experienced, professional team will bring moments of organized chaos, uproarious laughter and best of all a memorable experience.
