Cabaret Appearances

For our shorter cabaret appearances, we generally perform some of our ‘hit’ songs, threaded with our sparkling banter and repartee. Set length – anything from five to thirty minutes or whatever tickles your fancy, madam.

Full-length shows (theatre & festivals)

Our longer shows are scripted and follow a narrative arc. Loosely! But all delivered in cabaret format.

Not so Much a Variety Show, More of a Midlife Crisis

Hosted by The Martini Encounter and embracing a heady mix of their banging toons and their dysfunctional relationships with one another, the trio present a threadbare and hilarious end of the pier/end of career variety show like no other featuring special guest acts from the worlds of burlesque, mind-reading and comedy.

Who Shot Wayne Sleep?

In cabaret format, former and faded variety turns, Binkie, Maud and Colin recall how they met at The Variety Club of Great Britain Rehabilitation Unit for the Criminally Deluded where they were taught to play the ukulele and organ in preparation for their release into society following their various crimes against light entertainment.

Whatever Happened to The Martini Encounter?

Recalling the controversial performance which ended their – what could very loosely be described as – ‘careers’, faded variety turns, The Martini Encounter, reform for one night only at The Carol Vordeman Playhouse in Little Rimming with their ukuleles, spoon-playing, an impressive organ, sublime vocals and gin.
