THE “Rock n Roll Madhouse” featuring a double bill of character delights, celebrity impersonator and funnyman Danny Fisher and PE’s own Gino Fabbri, rolls into town on the eve of the Priory Fair on Friday (May 29).

“Music, crazy characters and a whole lot of fun will combine in a special pre-fair marquee tent which will be erected at the school,” said Centrestage spokesperson, Jessica Randall.

“The combination of these two rubber-faced comedy chameleons makes for a very special evening of rollicking entertainment, as “The Voice” Danny Fisher performs offbeat impressions of famous stars, from Ozzy Osbourne, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, Meatloaf and Roy Orbison to Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley.

“Fisher is well known to Eastern Cape audiences, having been a regular stalwart drawcard on the early Sun International circuit days. Danny then later joined The Blarney Brothers, with whom he toured South Africa for a long period,” she said.

His association with Centrestage continued when he fronted the Centrestage All-Star Band for the Elvis and Vegas hit extravaganza shows, both presented earlier at the Guild Theatre.

Randall said this would be only the second time that Fabbri and Fisher would have appeared together comedically, their first outing last year culminating in two sold-out evenings at East London’s Guild Theatre and standing ovations.

“Fisher is joined by the equally unhinged comedy of Gino Fabbri, who will present a mix of old favourites and some new roller-coaster segments in an old fashioned evening of music, mishap, mayhem and hijinks.

“The playful assortment of songs, sketches, special guest artists and naughty fun is produced under the ambit of the “Rancid Punjabi’s Professional Shows and Betting Agency”, an organisation not very well known for staging productions that run without a hitch.

“Priory parent Fabbri weighs in with a unique brand of zaniness as the show-businessman and racketeer struggles to recover from some unexpected disasters, with unpredictable and irrepressible interaction between Fabbri and Fisher ensuing.”

The seating will be around six- and 12-seater tables, with a bar and meals available.

The show starts at 7.30pm at the St Dominic’s Priory School, with tickets costing R140 each, R130 each for six or more and discounted to R120 each for 12 or more. They are available through Computicket and from Wendy on 082-661 6921.

Win! Win! Win!

We are giving away five double tickets to the show. To win, simply tweet #madhouse and tag @PEExpress1 and @centrestage_pe before 3pm tomorrow
