The Velvet Onion is pleased to be able to announce several more acts for our debut live night on Thursday May 31st at The Vandella.
The Velvet Onion Live! takes place on Thursday, May 31st 2012. Tickets are on sale NOW via Ticketweb, priced just £15. Please remember the venue is a licensed bar so it’s 18+ ONLY.
Two new funny men joining our star-studded bill are comedy legends James Bachman and Dan Tetsell.
Bachman, of course, is known for a wide range of productions – from his guest appearances in The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd and Beehive, through to his regular appearances in Saxondale, That Mitchell & Web Look, Bleak Expectations and Sorry, I’ve Got No Head.
Tetsell came to TVO’s attention via Mongrels and radio sketch show The Museum Of Everything, but he is also well loved by comedy fans thanks to his work on As It Occurs To Me with Richard Herring, starring in BBC2 sitcom Lab Rats and writing shows as diverse as After Your Gone, The Omid Djalili Show, We Are History, Gash and The Basil Brush Show!
James and Dan are not the only names to be added to our star-studded line-up! We’re very pleased to confirm that cult singer/songwriter James Cook will be joining us for an exclusive mini-set. Cook is, of course, best known as the former frontman of Nemo – and for his frequent appearances in The Mighty Boosh. He released his debut solo album, Arts And Siences last year.
Another musical virtuoso joining us is Will Summers – Tudor-folk legend and frequent collaborator of Antony Elvin. Boosh fans may remember Will’s guest appearance at Noel Fielding & Dave Brown’s outdoor painting & signing session in Soho last October, and prog fans will no doubt be familiar with his work with Circulus & Princes In The Tower.
All in all, this show is going to be packed out with some of the very best names in Booshdom. Our full-line up is as follows!
Alice Lowe ♦ Antony Elvin ♦ Dan Tetsell ♦ David McNeill
DeadDogInBlackBag ♦ Gareth Tunley ♦ James Bachman
James Cook ♦ Joey Page ♦ Lucy Montgomery ♦ Rachel Stubbings
Richard Glover ♦ Richard Sandling ♦ Stephen Evans ♦ Steve Oram
