A Grand Huzzah with Thomas Benjamin Wild Esg. & Scott Doonican
Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. is teaming up with Scott Doonican from The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican for a night of comedy and music. Expect a set from each of these comic troubadours and a collaboration set where anything could happen.
Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. has been delivering his own brand of singalong, musical humour since 2016. The video for his sweary anthem ‘I’ve No More F**ks To Give’ has been viewed over 13 million times on YouTube, and his debut album ‘Awkward Encounters While Walking My Dog’ reached number 3 in the Billboard International Comedy Album Chart in 2019.
Thomas takes inspiration from the wit and wisdom of the songwriters of the early-mid 20th century and combines them with punk rock sensibilities to create pithy songs full of catchy tunes and social and political commentary that speak volumes about the times we live in.
He has performed at venues and festivals across the UK and is a regular on the cabaret, burlesque and comedy circuits where audiences are left delighted by his humour, shrewd observations, charm and style. His shows boast a unique mix of original material, singalong classics and a sharp vintage wardrobe to match.
As the charismatic frontman of the UK’s hardest-working comedy band, ‘The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican’, Scott Doonican is a debonair and theatrical performer with superb hair and more style than you could shake a Milan catwalk at.
His solo shows are where Scott Doonican the story-teller, entertainer and showman, gets the opportunity to take his band’s extensive back-catalogue of comic-songs and perform them, stripped-back, on just his battered ‘Workhorse’ acoustic guitar or his little banjolele in his hand. Here, the Doonicans’ side-splitting song-smithery, comes to the fore, often accompanied by with an abundance of cracking yarns, giving a charming insight to the inspiration behind them.
Into his third decade of bringing smiles and belly-laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glasgow to Glastonbury Festival, Scott continues to wow audiences with a fine selection of The Bar-Steward Sons’ greatest hits, including the likes of “The Lady In Greggs”, “How Deep Is Your Glove?”, “Nandos”, and “Walking In Manpiss”.
