The satirical songs of Tom Lehrer have delighted and horrified audiences for decades, both through his own rare, acerbic performances and in the revue format of the West End and New York hit show Tomfoolery.
In September 2015, Adam Kay previewed his new take on Lehrer’s songbook at St James Theatre in London, and in April 2016 it opened at the West End’s Ambassadors Theatre. Everything from pigeon poisoning to masochistic tango via nuclear oblivion is revisited from the contemporary perspective of this award-winning performer.
The acclaimed front man of London Underground Song creators Amateur Transplants, has also been heard on the latest series of BBC Radio Four’s The Now Show.
