Edmond


Imagine your guests surprise to be greeted by a totally obsequious and outrageous Basil Fawlty! (Provided they are not Riff Raff of course)! Basil Fawlty, voted time and time again as the “Best Comedic character in the world!” On both Channel 4 and 5 in 2007, ‘08 and ‘09. A Classic that can be recreated at a venue of your own choice. Turn your event into one of surprise and hilarity.

Remembered by your guests for not just months, but years to come! Basil usually appears at your venue, not as a stage act, but actually meeting and greeting your guests at the reception, taking on the role of the owner of the premises, and giving the sort of hospitality one would expect from a Top Class Torquay Hotelier. Toastmaster duties for announcements are not a problem. He can work around the tables totally in character, be it a buffet or set meals. An excellent “Manuel” and “Sybil” are also available. As Basil would say: “Probably your needs are greater than mine”!

Testimonials:

“Just a quick note to say very many thanks for last night’s performance. ‘Basil’ took the place by storm and was a big hit with everyone. Your opening fracas in the kitchen was spot-on, and really took people by surprise, judging from the looks on their faces. The audience participation bit was excellent too. Thanks too, for posing for the many photo opportunities – seems that just about everyone wanted their picture taken with ‘Mr Fawlty’ (me included!) And for sticking around to mingle with the audience in-character: it must be quite an energy-draining experience being ‘someone else’ for hours at a time! All-in-all, a really successful night, with ‘Basil’ being the proverbial icing on the cake! Thanks again. I’ll certainly spread the word to my friends and colleagues.”
