He will be joined by ‘very funny’ (Time Out) comic Steve N Allen and the exciting newcomer Alex Perry. The evening will be headlined by the fabulous national comic, billed as ‘The Oldest Living Jewish Comedian’ – SOL BERNSTEIN.
 ”One part Alf Garnett, two parts Mel Brooks, and three parts like nothing you have ever heard” The Guardian
 “An instantly winning creation” Evening Standard
Tickets spaces will be limited for the evening show to allow space for the Mustard TV filming equipment and will also sell early, so please book early.
Tickets are £12.50 but still only £10 if you purchase via Paypal (link below),  Rosy Lee’s Tea Rooms and also Spoon Cake Tea Rooms (Bridge Street, Loddon). We have a fully licensed bar serving local beers and other beverages and the doors open at 7pm. The evening will also include a BBQ  which will be served during the intervals (from Wards Butchers). The BBQ can be ordered at the beginning of the evening for £5 (large homemade burger, homemade bun and fresh green salad, extras and sauces).
We are lucky to attract such high quality acts to Loddon Mill Arts and this evening will be no exception.. After 25 years of semi retirement, playing nursing homes, Sol Bernstein is back where he belongs, in smoky nightclubs performing to drunks. The legend that is Sol Bernstein escaped the Pogroms in Russia, the Nazis in Germany, and went on to become the World’s first all-round entertainer. He’s a song and dance man, a comedian, a magician, an actor, a Jazz musician (Sol was rated “Best Triangle” player in the USA in the 50’s by performers like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington ). Sol is also rated as the best impersonator and comic character ever !!

He’s performed all over the world at venues including The London Palladium, New York’s Carnegie Hall, The Paris Olympia, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and Scunthorpe Baths, but it’s at night clubs where Sol really comes to life. His charisma, his style, his catch phrase “why don’t you put on a tie” his chutzpah, put it all together and you see the magic that is Sol Bernstein. He’s the man who helped the career’s of Elvis Presley. Marcel Marceau and even the Beatles were influenced. He’s worked with, and been friends with, some of the worlds GREATEST performers including Elvis, Judy Garland, The Rat Pack, Lenny Bruce, Jack Benny, George Burns, Doris Day, Tommy Cooper, Eric Morecambe, Eddie Large…the list goes on.

“He’s the greatest” Frank Sinatra.
Sol Bernstein is the comic creation of Steve Jameson, himself a top comedy performer and impersonator.
It will be a great and memorably entertaining summer’s evening and will raise much needed money for Chedgrave MS Therapy Centre, as well as being the chance to get yourself on Mustard TV!
We look forward to seeing you all there!  Katherine & Andy
