Two award-winning comedians will pay homage to a pair of legends.

Tim FitzHigham and Duncan Walsh Atkins will take on the rolls of extraordinary comic talents Michael Flanders and Donald Swann in front of a Weston audience this month.

Flanders and Swann were much-loved and internationally acclaimed musical comedy legends from the 1950s and 1960s.

With their own flare, the duo presented classic songs and traditions and FitzHigham and Atkins will follow in their steps.

Songs include The Hippopotamus Song (Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud), The Gas Man Cometh, The Gnu Song, Omnibus (or A Transport Of Delights) and Madeira M’Dear.

The comedians are well known for their performances on BBC Radio as well as their television careers.

FitzHigham appeared on CBBC show Superhuman Challenge and has also starred in two seasons of BBC Radio 4’s The Gambler.

Atkins runs a busy London music studio. He has also provided music for BBC television’s Fast And Loose and is the musical director of the Olivier Award-winning musical Showstopper! The Improvised Musical.

He has also opened his own musical Tailor Made Man at London’s Arts Theatre.

Flanders and Swann will be at The Playhouse Theatre, in Weston’s High Street, at 7.30pm on March 22.

Tickets, priced £16.50-17.50, are available from www.theplayhouse.co.uk or 01934 645544.
