Fresh from two sell-out stints at the Theatre Royal, Norwich, and the Norwich Playhouse alongside comedy partner Owen Evans, Karl Minns from the Nimmo Twins is back in the city with his new one-man show. STACIA BRIGGS asked Karl about appearing on stage without any back-up, a boy who can set the bed on fire using the power of his dreams and the difficulties of rehearsing on your own.

Matt Tedford in Margaret Thatcher, Queen of Soho

Mirror balls, muscular men in short-cropped jeans, and, er, the Iron Lady? It might not be an obvious combination but this show is an exuberant delight.

The combination of a lead trombone with alto sax backed by a three piece rhythm section worked superbly in the Spiegeltent at the festival. Mathew Herd has a remarkable bright tone on his alto and this merged unexpectedly well with the very mellow trombone of Tom Green. Sometimes on the head these two played in harmony and in the opening chorus sometimes in counterpoint. This makes them sound like a very big small band.
