Press Quotes


Critic's Choice in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Evening Standard, and Three Weeks.


"Wallowing in a Muddy Marvellous Revival. Wheelchair using vocalist Flanders and bright eyed pianist Swann have both now gone to the great loose ends broadcast in the sky but whippersnappers Tim FitzHigham and Duncan Walsh Atkins are flying the flag with this winning celebration. The songs remain masterfully comic compositions...if you think Eminem is the last word in lyrical dexterity listen to FitzHigham - a younger, sexier Richard Stilgoe - wrap his tonsils around Flanders' tongue-tangling Have some Madeira M'dear. This unashamedly retro revue will not change your voting habits however for admirers of cabaret with impeccable manners these Swann songs certainly fit the bill"Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard


"chaps don't have to play rugger any more and Nigel Molesworth's "gurls" are running the show, but there's still plenty of vim in the songs of Flanders and Swann. Tim FitzHigham sports an impressive beard, while the bespectacled Walsh Atkins submits to suave teasing over his preference for living in the lower depths (known to most of us as Battersea)."Clive Davis, The Times


"At the Drop of a Hippopotamus captures their (Flanders and Swann's) astute wit and delight in ingenuous wordplay - a great British tradition"The Guardian
