Returning to Ledbury after his successful Flanders and Swann Revisited show last year, actor, pianist, singer and general one-man band Michael Lunts presents Michael Lunts presents Tickling the Ivories, a musical romp through a hundred years of comedy song, a potted history of the comedy song, mining the archives from the 1870s to the 1970s; from Gilbert and Sullivan to Tom Lehrer; from Music Hall to Monty Python.

While offering a fascinating overview of the comedy song in all its variety, Tickling the Ivories is, as its name suggests, first and foremost a musical entertainment, a smile-inducing, laughter-engendering entertainment, as Michael works his way, and his fingers, through ten decades of musical wit. Alongside songs by Noël Coward, Flanders and Swann, Cole Porter and the Gershwins, Michael also offers up some less familiar gems from the genre.

One man, a white jacket, 88 piano keys and a treasure trove of musical mirth, Tickling the Ivories is a show that is guaranteed to tickle anyone’s sense of humour.

In aid of Ledbury Community Transport.

Michael Lunts will be tickling the ivories at Ledbury's Market Theatre on Saturday, November 3 at 7.30pm. To book, call the box office on 07967 517125 or visit
