Variety is not dead. Neither are John Sparkes and Pete Baikie who return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the first time in 15 years after winning four Welsh BAFTAS and numerous plaudits for their hit shows such as Absolutely, Naked Video and most recently six series of the cult HTV show Barry Welsh Is Coming.
Three times Perrier Award nominated Sparkes and Baikie have unearthed acres of archive footage from the Fifties to the present day to create a new-style Variety extravaganza – a mix of filmed tributes to long-forgotten (fictional) acts such as Mr. Motionless, Billy Daft, and The Marxist Brothers, and live performances from variety veterans such as the oldest comedian still alive, Johnny Fffff, and the great Russian illusionist Yaputcha Leffleggin. Pete and John also promise appearances from some of the best-loved characters from Absolutely.
