The Continuing Story of Carla Rhodes Comes to Glasgow
by Cecil Sinclaire
Greetings and salutations fine Glaswegians! I'm Cecil Sinclaire, vaudeville legend! I perform with a New York City harlot, pardon me, starlet named Carla Rhodes. Our agent Tappy Fleaberg (the world's only tap dancing circus flea) chomped on his cigar and booked us at the glorious Glasgow Comedy Festival. I'll be making my big comeback and tossing saltwater taffies to the adoring masses!
I've decided to question Miss Rhodes about our spectacular show. Tell us a bit about the show and as quickly as possible!
Carla: The Continuing Story Of Carla Rhodes is a mash-up of rock'n'roll ventriloquism, comedy and original music - tied together by the thread of a young gal's dream of hitting the big time in New York City! I'm usually backed by my real live band The Extravaganzas, but in Glasgow I'll be backed by the Paranormals (my invisible ghost band)!
Cecil: The show is filled with wild jungle musics, which I don't approve of, but I believe it promises to be a rollicking good time! I'm the star and the whole show rests on my laurels, but what other inferior creatures are in the show?
Carla: Legendary rockers Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. A pigeon named Herschel Ragbottoms, who lives under the newspapers in the East Village. Under Bed Alligator pops up when I least expect it, manipulating me with his fear mongering tactics! Last but not least, you (Cecil) play a mysterious vaudeville legend who's been locked away in a trunk for over 80 years! Exactly like your real life persona!
Cecil: If only you could be locked away for 80 years! Ladies and Gents and folks in-between, do come and see us at the vaudeville palace known as Capitol on 19 March. Delight and revel in astonishment at The Continuing Story Of Carla Rhodes!
Carla and Cecil will be performing The Continuing Story of Carla Rhodes at Capitol on Saturday 19 March at 8.30pm. Click here for more show information.
