Outdoor shows - with style and comfort

Postby CvdC » 20 Feb 2007, 05:45

Now here's an interesting idea.
http://www.tradboatrally.com/gallery6bank/pages/Punch%20and%20Judy.htm
Wouldn't this be just the ticket for the seaside shows.
With a set up like this you could set up a day bed for a nap between shows, A small kitchen so you can make a cuppa and maybe even cook lunch.

And your booth wouldn't get wet. Tough luck for the audience though.

I sort of imagine a french divan, a couple of blackmoors either end on a large Turkish rug, some cushions scattered around and potted plants. A round louis XVI table on which to put a venitian glass bottle with which to wet one's swazzle.
At the appointed time your bottler could ring a little bell and you would step into your booth, do a show and then fall back onto your divan to recover.

Now if you turn around this is what you see:

And just to round off the picture, and to prove I do know how to waste time, here are the sides.
Oh by the way I will take orders for making this booth. However be warned that it does add somewhat to your set up time.

I think it would be about £20,000. That of course depends on the availabilty of the various antiques. You will need a van and a bottler who has experience as a removalist.
I do throw in a velvet smoking jacket.

David
What about that clown suit that you wore on Clacton beach on occasions with the Wilde and Battey show, have you still got it?
It was only around 15 years ago - it's not like you to throw anything away so is it under the roof space?

well here is the outside. I will be subcontracting Richard Coombs to do the prosceniums. As you see above, Professor Felix already looks suave and sophisticated between shows in his palatial Punch booth. You too can cut a dash when performing at the next royal garden party.
Order one NOW.
Selected clientele only, no riff raff.

Think he'd need a new trolley! Or does it come with it's own porter?
