About Kit and the Widow's Christmas Roast

"The Best Act In Their Price Range." Joan Rivers

It has been eight long years since Kit & The Widow last appeared in the West End.  But now the Brigadoon of cabaret artistes are back. Peering through the mist they are poised to lift the spirits (and indeed the veil if they dare) in a season traditionally characterised by miserable weather and family discord.

These eight lean years have seen Europe's leading lounge act exiled to such far-flung destinations as Barbados, St Moritz, New York, Sydney and Rijad.  After deportation to such vibrant and sun-drenched locations, how delighted Kit & The Widow are to be back in London in the middle of winter.  In seasonal mood they offer up three nights of song and haphazard badinage at London's Arts Theatre.

"Combining the allure of Flanders & Swann and Noel Coward with a healthy dose of Julian Clary...tinkling the ironies with class and camp..." Independent

With a combined age of 98 (internet age 32, no time wasters please), Kit & the Widow bring all that life experience to bear on the major issues of the day.

Where on earth do you get a swivel pipe connection fixed in Gdansk?
Who on earth do you use to deep-clean a Nissan Micra?
Why on earth DO you solve a problem like Maria?
What on earth is Noel Edmonds?

What's that?  Did someone mention a war in Iraq?  Nuclear testing in North Korea?  Kit & The Widow can't be expected to deal with every tiny satirical frippery.  Get used to it.

"Witheringly rude...literate and sophisticated...inventively filthy" Daily Telegraph

In these times of religious unrest, Kit & The Widow offer up a secular-lite, non-denominational Winter spectacular that promises to be fun for all the family. Except perhaps for Paul McCartney's family.  Or John Prescott's family.  Or Madonna Ciccone's new family/image. (Christmas is of course a particularly busy time for Madonnas.  And all that shopping in Africa to be done as well.) 

Take a break from bulk-buying iPod Nanos while stocks still last.  The batteries are going to be flat by New Year anyway.  Flee the crowds and take a seat in the subterranean Santa's Grotto that is the Arts Theatre.

Come, drink deep of the cabaret wassail.
