The Glummer Twins

The Glummer Twins


Fast paced, rhythmic two handed stand-up comedy poetry,based [very] loosely around the theme of getting older. Mainly two handed performance poetry, often layered to give a backing track and lead voice. We also use looping in some pieces to provide additional layers/texture. The show included a few pieces with live musical backing. To give a flavour the set contains: Train Spotter, Middle Aged Men in Lycra, The Mod Grandfather, Elvis Quiff, 1957, A Streetcar Named Retired, Silver Surfer, Middle Class Elderly Fat Bloke Rap. So, some nostalgia, plenty of self deprecating humour, a bit of putting the world to rights and a few surreal insights into modern life. The show has a loose narrative strand rather than just being a set of random pieces.
