The Golden Age of Musical Satire

From the trenches to the recession, from darkly comic to inanely silly, Peter Gill returns to Solihull Arts Complex this bank holiday weekend with his one-man-and-a-piano performance of classic comic songs.

Dynamic and versatile entertainer Gill (The Story of Jerry Lee Lewis, Let the Good Times Roll), looks back over the last century in celebration of comedy song smiths such as Tom Lehrer and Randy Newman, the great lyricisms of Noel Coward, George Formby and Cole Porter, and then the more modern talents of Monty Python, Victoria Wood and Billy Connolly.

The highly enjoyable 90-minute performance will appeal to anyone old enough to have developed a sense of humour – whether they are hearing the songs for the first time or the hundred-and-first time.

‘The Golden Age of Musical Satire’ starts at 19.30 on Saturday 5 May – an ideal bank holiday treat for those not planning a getaway. Tickets cost £12, to book call 0121 704 6962 or visit
