Boothby & Nick follow on from the success of their The Return Of Boothby Graffoe 2011 tour by having another jolly trip up and down the country to promote the new studio album ‘Bang! Is This Your Vehicle Sir?’ which is released in February 2012.
‘Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.’
– Stewart Lee, foul-mouthed left-wing comedian
‘If I had to compare him to anyone, it would be Spike Milligan.’ – Omid Djalili
‘The world would be a poorer place without his eccentric turn of phrase. Graffoe’s long time collaborator, the unassuming multi-instrumentalist Nick Pynn, accompanies him on-stage: as well as adding subtle texture to the songs, he comes close to stealing the show with folksy musical interludes on violin, guitar and Appalachian dulcimer.’ – The Times
‘Rare among comedy singer-songwriters in that he’s not intensely twee and annoying.’
The Sunday Times, Culture Section (Must Sees & The Critical List)
‘Sings songs that are both beautiful and funny’ – The Guardian
‘…. Nick Pynn. Brighton’s own folk-rock dignitary’s skill, along with comic timing, complimented Graffoe’s exquisitely twisted lyrics perfectly to produce a show as entertaining musically as it was funny. This show was as fun for the performers as it was the audience, long may this fertile collaboration continue.’ – Brighton Argus
‘About as challenging as a warm bath, infused with the radox of whimsy.’ Chortle
