Meet Laurie Black – one of our fab acts on 20 March at Improbable Lounge

This Thursday 20 March you can see a veritable smorgasbord of cabaret and musical improv delights. All for free at our weekly residential Improbable Lounge!

8pm at the priory arms, 83 Lansdowne Way, Stockwell. Nearest tube: Stockwell. FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/1840753892730513/?ref=2&ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming

Acts include:

~~ Laurie Black – musical comedy on uke, keyboards & Accordion!

~~ Faye Treacy – musical clowning

~~ Harry Scott-Moncrieff – bizarre magician

~~Madame Galina – Prima Ballerina Assoluta

Plus musical comedy improv cabaret from US, your hosts, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry….

But don't take our word for it – make your own mind up by reading the words and wisdom of our fabbest ukelele songstress Laurie Black. See Laurie for FREE by getting on down to the Improbable Lounge on Thursday!

Name: Laurie Black

Improv/creative outlet: Anything musical I can get my hands on – keyboards, ukuleles & accordions mainly. I sing a bit too.

Tell us about your act in a nutshell: A black n white haired banshee singing funny songs.

Apart from musical comedy, what other hats do you wear: I write, record and publish my own music – both musical comedy and more serious dance-industrial style tunes. I am a part-time Space Cadet at the Cyberdog Mothership in Camden and I make garters (Laurie Black Garters). In my spare time, I also go to university 😉

Musical comedy philosophy: Either they're laughing at your jokes or they're laughing at you being crap and having crap jokes – either way, they're laughing!

Best musical moment: Playing piano for Joe Black – possibly a distant cousin of mine – in Windsor last year. We rocked some Tom Waits and, of course, Cruella. That was my first big step into the world of cabaret and musical comedy.

What makes you happy: I'm a metalhead at heart, so getting the chance to go wild at a metal gig makes me happy & is good for my bones. But great musical comedy, improv and being surrounded by wonderful performers makes me equally as happy – I definitely feel that when I play Improbable Lounge with Red Lorry Yellow Lorry.

And finally…your favourite tongue twister: Purple Burglar Alarm (best said with a strong Scottish accent, go on)

 

 

What a night we had…fun for all

We had another fabulously fun time at the Improbable Lounge on Thursday (6 March) – make sure you join us on Thursday 13 March for more musical improv & cabaret delights. We will be having our very first burlesque act – with a comedy twist. That's the talented Ursula Dares. And musical comedy ukulele action from Improbable Lounge favourite Marc Steele.

Plus the usual (but still all made up on the spot taking your suggestions) improvised cabaret tunes from your hosts, us – Red Lorry Yellow Lorry musical improv.

In the meanwhile, here's a few of the things we learnt at Improbable Lounge 6 March

1. The crumpet of truth can save the day – taught to us by improvised puppet show Glitch

2. A dead cat in the bed can ruin the promising career of a pop star – taught to us by improvised comedy lounge act Phil Lunn (in the guise of Steve Jones, comeback star)

3. Being German is an occupation (or at least that's what the audience member thought when they shouted out 'Germans' when we asked for an occupation…

4. Gardeners need charity singles to raise money to help them build walls…

5. John-kus are like haikus but come from Stockwell

 

 

 

Come to the Improbable Lounge! Thursday 6 March

This week we have the amazing Glitch – the improvised puppet show. Plus improvised lounge act Phil Lunn.

It's all held together with magical musical cabaret tunes made up on the spot, from your suggestions by Red Lorry Yellow Lorry musical improv. That's us, your hosts!

We start at 8pm as usual, and the Priory Arms will be its usual cosy self, stacked with posh beer and other liquids (I'm a white wine girl myself), and even does great and reasonably priced bar food..

Please come! Look – here's a visual rendition of what you'll see. And it's free free free too – gotta be good, right? 🙂
