Dolly Parton struggles to ride a donkey, the animal's ears getting caught up in her wildly inflated bosom; before long Judy Garland turns up singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow before morphing into ET.
Welcome to the strange and fantastic world of "living cartoon" Ennio Marchetto, the master of improbably bizarre transformations.
Since bursting on to the international comedy scene in the early 1990s, Marchetto has thrilled audiences the world over with his witty, genuinely unique act.
Dressing as stars past and present in an array of paper costumes, he lip synchs exuberantly to appropriate songs.
So, when the National Anthem strikes up, Her Majesty edges modestly onstage. The tune then changes, a moustache is whipped from the ether and Freddie Mercury is suddenly gyrating before us to I Want to Break Free.

The phrase "fun for all the family" often means "just about tolerable for the sake of the kids." However, in this case rest assured - anyone with a pulse could not fail to be dazzled by this truly remarkable showman.
