The Sid Bowfin Show

by Sid Bowfin

Manic idiot violinist Sid Bowfin- unpredictable, unhinged, and unique. It’s the funniest and most ridiculous concert you'll ever see.

Our virtuoso combines madcap comedy with superb musicianship. Watch Sid and his audience compete, argue, ridicule and seduce their way through the most popular works from across centuries, turning classical performance on its head with Sid's hilarious spontaneous comedic antics.

Crowds will revel in his renditions of Mozart’s one-legged Rondo, Vivaldi’s secret agent Winter, Brahms's Hungarian dancers and Rossini’s choir of barbers. There’s even Sid’s legendary ‘requests section’. 

Enjoy classical comedy for the masses. It’s the Sid Bowfin Show!

If you want a completely live ensemble experience, consider The Bowfins. The trio can be as ridiculous as Sid Bowfin on his own, or as well behaved as you wish, with plenty of repertoire to appropriately entertain the most genteel gathering.

‘I can’t recommend Adrian too highly. Apart from the fact that his act is great – very funny, very high quality, tremendous audience rapport – if I could have bottled the atmosphere in St Peters Street yesterday and showed it to my local politicians we would have no trouble with funding. He is also one of those acts that helps to make an event run smoothly – happy to do links at the end of his act to direct the audience to the next thing, happy to shelter under the PA tent and continue in the rain. Just an ideal act that makes my job easy’

‘We witnessed your wonderful performances at the Kendal Mintfest and wish to say a personal thank you for giving us so much pleasure. The interaction between you and the baby on Saturday will stay with us for ever - it was truly magical. You are a very talented musician and your expertise managing the audience was noted by many. We thought you were fantastic.’
