One of the funniest cabaret acts I’ve had the pleasure of seeing on stage has to the fantastic Topping and Butch.

I first met Topping when he was part of an act with Dave Lynn back in the early 90’s whilst working at a pub in Islington.

You may also have heard them on BBC Radio 4 “Loose ends” with their topical ditty “Never Mind”.

One of their best songs in their act was “Gaydar the Musical” a parody set to various musicals about the Gay dating site Gaydar.

Another one of their more Risqué songs has to be their take on the Les Miserable’s “Master of the House”.

They can still be found performing at many venues throughout the UK and sometimes the Edinburgh festival.

Their website gives more information about them.

I would like to thank Topping and Butch for all the laughs and the innuendo whenever I’ve seen them perform.
