The Variety Spectacular

by Jones and Barnard

A satirical exploration examining the eccentricities of the collective British character through the universal language of eccentric dance, classic song and variety skill routines, entwined with an original funky soundtrack and intimate comedy.

This duo have a totally fresh approach to the presentation of comedy classics, combined with a sensitive use of volunteers to comedic effect making the audience part of, not apart from, the show.

In the winter the show is available as ‘Jones and Barnard's Comedy Christmas Cavalcade’.  This seasonal variety show features spinning Christmas Puddings, a festive soundtrack and the usual amazing variety stunts.
