Comedy magician and general goofbag El Baldinho comes to town with his latest set of under-rehearsed magic japes. Prepare to be amazed by his lack of magical prowess, gaze in wonder as he stops half way through tricks to read the instructions, and marvel at his inability to remember a simple script. As seen in major comedy clubs and music festivals throughout the UK, EL Baldinho is sensitively portrayed by TV comedy sketch actor Jason Mannion, as featured in John Bishop’s Britain.

Back for the last time this season is MC Troy Hawke. Troy is an erudite homeschooled 1930′s throwback… the Errol Flynn of the high street; educated, sophisticated, but utterly clueless. Being a regular at Travestees he is getting to know the audience – with whom he enjoys a great deal of jovial badinage – very well indeed. Intrigued as much by farmers and warlocks as he is students and ‘The Proper Job’ staff, Troy tackles modern issues head on in his uniquely untimely manner.
