The Cockpit Presents...
SISTER MARY'S BIG SUNDAY SHOW
With Silky, John Danbury, Jo Wickham
This month Sister Mary is joined by yet another line up exceptional talent.
Silky’s fourth ever stand-up gig was the televised 1995 BBC New Comedy Awards Final. This is not typical in comedy but Silky is no typical comedian.
For two decades, he’s been charming audiences with his Liverpudlian lilt and unrivalled wordsmithery. Sharing the stage with his trusty guitar, he can conjure up a sonorous stunner on the spot and pick through previously played pieces with such a natural dexterity it’s a wonder he’s not simply a professional musician. His improvisational skills and natural sense of joy are addictive, making him hugely popular with comedy fans and fellow comedians alike.
Massively engaging stand-up whose instinctive rapport with audiences makes him welcome wherever he goes. - Guardian Guide
For over 20 years John Danbury has been performing Magic. Having started life as a Musical Theatre Actor, John is the crooning conjuror, the singing sorcerer who has performed across the world.
He has wowed audiences from Tokyo to Torquay from Miami to Middlesbrough, having entertained in every conceivable venue including theatres, hotels, royal palaces and front rooms, and has been resident close up magician for the London Hilton, park lane and on The Orient Express.
He performed for HRH Prince William and HRH Prince Harry at the Diana memorial concert and subsequently performing for HRH Prince Charles at a private function at his home.
Fatter than dynamo and taller than Derren please welcome John Danbury: Magician extraordinaire.
