So the critics came, they saw, they laughed (thank God) and they reviewed us in our West End debute. Yes Gideon Reeling or as Time Out call us ‘Punchdrunk offshoots and bespoke theatrical troupe Gideon Reeling bring their deliciously wonky take on the Xmas Party to the Soho Theatre.’ – Time Out
‘It’s the Christmas Party season. But before you go to your awful evening, you should go to this – the most bizarre office Xmas party you will ever attend. I went to last year’s critically acclaimed, sell-out run and it’s bananas.‘ – Le Cool
‘expect to be immersed into a hilarious world of grotty Santas and scary elf-men as the assistants lead you through a host of seasonal feats, party games and comedy songs.’– Time Out
Come and see for yourself. It’s running until the 23rd of December. This year’s show guarantees to replace all your humbugs with festive cheer. Warning show contains tinsel, mince pies, nuts and bulimia. Any allergies to fun must be left at the front door. Chrimbo kisses from Mr Reeling and his Assistants.
Every year I join Bestival organiser and Radio 1 DJ, Rob da Bank for his Christmas special on Radio 1.Each year I turn up to Maida Vale with Lost & Found, to host the programme and perform on radio completely tinseled up to the max. We have just about covered everything fancy dress theme from the blessed nativity to a full-scale Band Aid reunion. This year our ridiculousness continued as we adopted the guises of a Bavarian Folk Group (think German Christmas Market). Normally we sing on helium but “Elf and Safety” sadly wouldn’t allow us to this year. Luckily I know a trio of amazing delights called Goodbye Leopold that saved our bacon and kept this sacred tradition alive. With these three beauties onboard I was unstoppable and ready to inject Maida Vale with a huge flu jab sized dose of fun. Goodbye Leopold sang two backwards carols beautifully, watch the video below, even Mark Ronson who was playing on the show was impressed. The show also featured Jamie N Commons, Azari & III, Crystal Fighters and finishing it off was myself with my Bavarian dressed friends. I taught the bands and Rob how to yodel and sung a very wonky version of ‘Silent Night’ in German. Funny stuff. Merry Christmas.
Here. Yep. It’s a boxing night, with beer obviously and me playing some tunes in-between the violence. Pretty straight forward. This is not for the faint hearted, so if you like watching men hit each other, please come. If not stay home and watch Corrie, probably safer.
