I've been DYING to see this show. Did Nurse Electra shove the electrode somewhere interesting? Or did you see the family friendly version?

Made me laugh like hell!

Yes Seb has a wonderful show which Dave covered in detail last year on its first time out at Dingles.

He is very brave to take it out in its present form (Ticket in for survival) I hope somewhere along the way that he can get sponsorship to take the pressure off a bit for him.

Its, take this cucumber which will give you great pleasure,,,,and examine it,,,I know cos that line belonged to......

Best of good luck to them all.

Yes Mark and Seb has the snot covered Kleenex in a frame even now!

I think he tweaked the line a bit since he stole it off you .....erm I mean consulted with you.... the way I remember it was this:-

"Madam please takes this (holds out cucumber) and pleasure yourself ......(cheeky pause but done with Victorian grace and sophistication as only the b@stard could [is that a secret Ken by the way?]) That it is indeed a real cucumber" It doesn’t read well like that and you have to not read the bits in brackets out loud.

I recall the show very well ---- Carrie still does not realise how far I travelled to take some photos of an old fart bashing nails in to his face, breath fire and generally try to wind up young girls! I was so late leaving I had to burn a tank of fuel to get down there on time - and if it were this year I would be almost out of pocket (£1.22 for a pint of Diesel!) Still I had a great day!

Close, but no cigar! Take this and satisfy yourself...that it is an ordinary cucumber! Smile A great bit of double entendre and a great act too.

To put the record straight >>> It was not my joke.

The original joke was from K Brooke who put it out in a rope routine back in the 50`s. Barry Walls passed it on to me after seeing Pat & I doing our signature opening of Blindfold Sword work which we did for 18 years at 4 Seasons Events.

I no longer use it, it`s open for anyone and quite a few people use it.
Claims to fame seem to pop up all the time,,,memory and a large library are the best proof.

For all I know Brooky may have got it from someone else !!! So what.

On the same subject >> At a cabaret gig in Shaftesbury Avenue (Limelight Club) Few years back, we did the electric act useing the box from Taurus Magic Supply.

With the all adult crowd the club act as known was split into two sections with the first section finale being the box.

All the usual lighting of brands, apples etc had been done which is followed with the 4ft tubes,,,the climax being the 12 inch tube shuved up the bum and useing the foot switch on and off to the strings of Rule Brittania !

On this occassion the end of the anal tube got too close to the metal standing plate which in turn arched the sparks from plate to @ss. Most uncomfortable with the result of sting ring which I had to put up with all through the second section of the show.

Needless to say, I have made sure that this will never happen again !
