DAVID SCHEEL is a true Australian success story. So much so that he is regarded internationally as one of the finest solo musical comedy performers in the world.
A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and right across the USA, this is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge. Beautiful music, and musical fun performed in so many accents/voices that David has also been compared to the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov. Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters + an iPod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left, plus his “translation” of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, already a comedy classic.
“As funny as any, wittier than most, and, uniquely, a concert pianist of international stature…He stands alone, in a class of his own.” [BBC Arts Review]
“The only show in town that can satisfy lovers of classical music and comedy alike.” [San Francisco Chronicle]
