George Melly, Norwich
TONY COOPER George Melly, dressed rather unusually in a quiet suit but making up for it with a very loud tie and sporting a fedora hat, brought a bit of warmth and lots of amusement to a packed audience on a very damp and dismal Sunday.
George Melly, dressed rather unusually in a quiet suit but making up for it with a very loud tie and sporting a fedora hat, brought a bit of warmth and lots of amusement to a packed audience at the Norwich Playhouse on a very damp and dismal Sunday.
I often wonder how he manages to fit in such a heavy touring schedule nowadays. But he does so and his adoring public like him for it and this was no exception.
He sticks to a well-tried and well-proven format and backed by his old friend and partner John Chilton, playing alongside his Feetwarmers, lovable George sang his way through about 20 numbers, spiced with some of his erstwhile anecdotes – some old, some new and some very wide of the mark. The girl in the taxi and the fridge in the night will long be remembered. The audience roared!
George and the Feetwarmers were on top form and it seems that at 75 Good-Time George is far from down and out and going on for a record. A magnificent evening!
