A fun night of banter and witty words

2011-11-17 00:00

PRINCE Charles and Camilla, the Duzi, O. R. Tambo Airport and a host of African politicians got a bit of a roasting in Robert-Ian Caldwell and Jeff Judge’s new show, A Green Number, when it was staged at the Hexagon Dive last week.

The show opened with a version of Let’s Fall In Love, which boasted some intriguing new lyrics, including the fact that Charles and Camilla “do it” by command of her majesty the Queen.

That song proved to be the appetiser for a night of banter and witty words, during which the two men took liberties with songs like Daisy, Daisy, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Maria and Somewhere from West Side ­Story, Daar Kom Die Ali Baba, How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria from The Sound of Music, Don’t Put Your Daughter on the Stage, Mrs Worthington and many others.

During the course of a fun-filled evening, Caldwell and Judge also took the mickey out of medical maladies and the gentleman’s game of cricket and even provided a hysterical new take on Cinderella.

The two men enjoyed a successful run with A Green Number at the Grahamstown Festival earlier this year, and judging by the belly laughs and grins on the faces of those at the Dive last week, they scored a hit back home too.
