Mat Ricardo sez,
The first episode of the 2013 season of Mat Ricardo's London Varieties is now up, online, for anyone to watch, completely free!
This is the edited version of the brand new variety show that comes live, once a month, from the Leicester Square Theatre in the heart of London's West End! This months episode features juggling, magic, circus, comedy, music and two middle-aged men making fools of themselves with some hats. It was a fun night.
Some Boing Boing readers have said hi to me at previous shows, so I hope you all watch, enjoy and share it to your hearts content!
The next show is on March 28th, at 9.30, and features Al Murray The Pub Landlord in conversation, plus performances from The Boy With Tape On His Face, award-winning magician Pete Wardell, and the hilarious Elliot Mason. Oh, and I'll be attempting a feat of strength and dexterity that killed a fellow juggler in 1936. Tickets available right here.
