In this brand new show Makin productions present Graffoe who, graced with the partnership of talented multi instrumentalist Nick Pynn, brings to life his latest CD titled ‘songs for dogs, funerals…’
Following successful shows on Radio 4, writing for Omid Djalilis two award winning BBC series and extensive touring with Canadian super group The Barenaked Ladies, we’re delighted to welcome Boothby to Kettering Arts Centre and back to the world of live performance where he belongs.
Boothby’s dislikes include name-droppers and people who use celebrity connections to promote themselves in an unrealistic way…
“The funniest man I know” – Omid Djalili
“Boothby Graffoe conceals sharp political satire under a veneer of funny folksy whimsy, like Iron Man in a velvet romper suit” – Stewart Lee
“In my opinion Boothby Graffoe is one of the finest singer-song-writers in the world today” – Richard Thompson (Boothby’s’ got this one on tape.)
And from the press…
“sings songs that are both beautiful and funny” – The Guardian
“Boothby Graffoe is back with music and his own uniquely warped view of life, a master of the surreal” The Scotsman
“..its not fair to call them comedy songs, they are much more than that, there are some I would dare to call genius” The Times
“Buy two copies of his Cd because you’ll want to share but you won’t want to give away” The Scotsman
