One of The Scotsman’s top ten free fringe shows of 2012:
Mr.Twonkey is a true comic original. ★★★★The Scotsman. Bizarro! ★★★★ Time Out. Contains swearing and flashing lights Paul Vickers goes it alone with his own cabaret show, having sawn his glamorous assistant in half last year. When all is said and done Twonkey is a state of mind and that market stall won’t run itself so lets take a trip to the Bazaar. Why not treat yourself to a roll of Blue Cadabra from the man they’re calling the psychotic Ivor Cutler. A song about a young goat-herding girl in medieval Austria, who ends up being sent on a psychedelic trip, is a particular highlight. ★★★★ Exeunt. At one point we're all taken away on a ship sailed by the Queen of Ireland. It's quite lovely. ★★★★ The Skinny. This funny cute little show has enchanted many admirers and has proven Mr.Twonkeys imagination is endless. This Cabaret is in its fourth year and in rude health. Paul used to front john peel regulars Dawn of the Replicants now he’s gone plain Bananas all for your pleasure. There’s a fourth Twonkey L.P with his talented friends “Gasp” for your curious ears too released 05/08/13. He spouts endless eloquent nonsense, comparable to Edward Lear or Lewis Carroll. ★★★★ British Theatre Guide. NEW BOOK NEW BOOK NEW BOOK NEW BOOK NEW BOOK NEW BOOK: Itchy Grumble Book Launch plus mini Twonkey show in erotic shop window!
I am about to launch a small run of my first book at the erotic boutique The White Rabbit seven till half eight on friday the 26th of april 2013 its a free event. I will also be performing a small Twonkey window show in celebration of my book and Broughton streets top new sexy lingerie store. The shop itself is rammed to bursting with high-end hosiery and whips, paddles and ticklers. The book is a novelization of a song cycle I started with sonic alchemists ‘The Leg’ released as an album in 2010.
I like to think of it as a cross between Mervyn Peake’s “Gormenghast”, Ivor Cutler’s “Life in a Scotch Sitting Room” and Werner Herzog’s “Fitzcarraldo”. It features equally bonkers artwork by Mary Trodden and a collection of short fiction from the same world. You may know some of the tall tales from my one man Edinburgh festival fringe shows ‘Twonkey’s’. The hero of the main story Itchy Grumble is trapped in an impossible life, tumbling between different realities. After the dust settles on a colossal engineering project, the only path forward leads to a familiar underworld. I feel confident in saying that Itchy Grumble is the first of its kind for some time and recently won Shortbread Stories “Self Publish or Perish” prize. Be prepared for a story that has the power to turn New York into Yorkshire.
