Lewis Schaffer

Lewis Schaffer was a top comic in New York, as house MC at The Comedy Cellar and The Boston Comedy Clubs in Greenwich Village. However, his success and happiness was abruptly cut short, when a brief visit to London in 2000 went very wrong. Love, marriage and children, divorce, misery, crippling financial hardship, an emotional breakdown and tremendous heartache. ​​Currently trapped in a multi-occupancy council flat South London, Lewis Schaffer is making the worst of a bad situation, but making us all laugh along with him.

Not content with simply being an hilarious and controversial stand-up comedian, Lewis Schaffer has turned his hand to television. ​A beloved regular on the popular GB News show, Headliners, you will see him on the panel giving a very different take on current affairs.

You will also occasionally see Lewis Schaffer as a guest on Free Speech Nation, a show hosted by Andrew Doyle – where he interviews fantastic guests, has intellectual discussions, gives incredibly articulate monologues, and controls Lewis Schaffer. Lewis is also a regular at the Comedy Unleashed club.

Frank Sanazi

Frank Sanazi ze Ubermeister of Lounge, and Leader of The Iraq Pack, is ordering you to enter his World of Extreme Cabaret, bringing New Order and discipline to the usually more relaxed swing scene. Listen to swing classics twisted into an unbelievable dark mix of Weimar and Uneasy Listening together with his Blitzreig of comedy means you will certainly feel under attack.

As the name suggests Sanazi is an unnerving comedic mix of the singing legend Frank Sinatra and the infamous dictator Adolf Hitler, poking fun at history’s most famous German dictator through a mixture of puns, slapstick, and musical numbers.

With mockery of dictatorship and Nazism, Frank reworks The Rat Packs classics with his own extreme renditions, which he calls “Uneasy listening”. These hilarious numbers include such hits as “Third Reich”, “Strangers on my Flight” and “Zieg Heil with Me.” But, rest assured, Frank is not a Hitler tribute act!

Frank has performed all around the world, from Australia and Switzerland to Israel, including an emotional return visit and performances in Austria and Berlin. A firm favourite at festivals, Frank performs regularly at Glastonbury and Bestival, as well as the Fringe festivals in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Galway and Brighton where his shows have been highly acclaimed by the press.

Frank has 2 albums available: “Meinway on a Steinway” and “Songs for Swinging Leaders” which have all been enthusiastically received by his adoring fans (however his “White Christmas” album hasn’t sold as well).

“Initially shocking, this is actually a highly clever satire of the far right” Galway Advertiser

“A true original… I laughed out loud at this show” Brighton & Hove News

“It’s all brilliantly stupid, fantastically wrong and ridiculously funny” **** The Scotsman

“He will leave you in stitches. The Jokes are relentless” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“A blitzkrieg attack on taste and decency, Das Vegas Night 3 was a delight.” The Edinburgh Reporter

“A very entertaining if UN-PC show and I loved it” ***** Black Diamond (107.8FM)

Elvis Corpseley

Elvis Corpseley is a favourite on the cabaret scene, always in demand at Halloween time. With comedic reworded Elvis hits performed with over-the-top but authentic Elvis vocals and replica Vegas costume you will be delighted to hear that Elvis is back from the dead! The show includes such classics as “I’m All Dug Up” and “Burgers Went Straight to My Heart”.

Geoff Buys Cars

geoff-buys-carsYouTuber Geoff Thompson was unable to speak at our 2nd July Show (as advertised), but we are glad to announce that he’ll now be our guest speaker for the 1st Oct show. Geoff has an excellent channel called Geoff Buys Cars. With over 8m views on this YouTube channel Geoff has more recently been highlighting various motoring issues and what’s wrong with the world right now – the constant attack on motorists, creeping totalitarianism, corruption everywhere, broken politics, etc. Check out Geoff Buys Cars YouTube channel.

Ian Scott

We’re proud to announce that Ian will be performing a 25 min set of mixed covers for us this Sunday (not a tribute show). Typically Ian thrills audiences all around the UK with his superb double bill tribute to Neil Diamond and Tom Jones. Ian’s magnificent voice re-creates the emotion, excitement and passion of Diamond and Jones’s songs. Contact us if you would like to book him for your venue, party or event.

“The best of all the tribute shows we’ve had at the Dilmun. Ian had everyone on their feet. The feedback from the club members has been tremendous. His performance as a Tom Jones and Neil Diamond tribute was truly amazing”. J Silverthorne, The Dilmun Club Bahrain.
