Squit in the City 2
> Norwich Playhouse
This Norfolk dialect extravaganza not only kept the audience chuckling but also raised money for children and families in Norfolk and Norwich via Families House.
Keith Skipper made a chatty compere, threading between acts with anecdotes of fellow Cromer dwellers.
The acts were a mixture of comedy, song, poetry and story. Danny Platton bought us famous numbers by the Singing Postman alongside his own heartfelt ballads of Cromer.

Gal Liza and Mawther Sheilah mardled on with some wry observations about Norwich; David Woodward read us stories of traditional Norfolk life with a lovely deep voice and strong accent; Brian Patrick wrote a kind of oration on Horatio's Norfolk for Nelson's bicentenary; and Ian Prettyman topped the whole thing off with some sea shanties – all threaded together with Norfolk wit.
After the Mayor had drawn the raffle, the show continued with stand-up comedy from the Norfolk Nut, along with the Toff of Toftwood and the Bard of Bodham.
