The Royal Variety Show is a British National Insititution. Much like tea or cucumber sandwiches.
Historically it has always been a place for new comers in the music, comedy and theatre fields. Any that appeared on The Royal Variety Show , later went on to be big.
So I have been saving the most recent one for watching on a chill night. Tonight was that night.
I am soo disappointed. No new talent. The performers included Take That, Leona Lewis, Jimmy Carr, Duffy, Peter Kay (as Geraldine McQueen), four west end musicals, too name a few. All big stars who’ve made it.
The exception to this was of course George Samson:
I wish it would go back to giving new comers in the fields a chance.
Ok, rant over. (I feel better now!)
P.S it was made better by John Barrowman performing ‘What about us’ and I particularly loved the gay couple centre stage! See for yourself:
