WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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 London and New York hit show Tomfoolery. Now, Adam Kay brings his new take on Lehrer's songbook to the West End for the first time. 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 BBC Radio Four's The Now Show, with extensive writing credits including BBC Three sitcom Crims.
