Ventriloquist Steve Hewlett is offering DVD copies of his stage show Re-Educating Archie: The Archie Andrews Variety Show to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation in memory of his friend the comedian Dave Evans, who died recently. Dave, father of comedian Lee Evans, was also a fine performer in his own right and took part in Steve’s show featuring the dummy Archie Andrews a few years ago at the Underground Theatre in Eastbourne. The DVD of the show is a 2 hour variety special featuring the famous Archie Andrews dummy and the evening includes a recreation of an episode of the radio series Educating Archie live on stage. Dave plays Harry Secombe and Max Bygraves and other artistes appearing include Helen Ward Jackson as Hattie Jacques and David Conway as harmonica player Ronald Chesney. Steve Barclay appears as Max Miller and Grimble and there is a special guest appearance by Andrew Van Buren and Allyson.
The DVD costs £12 (including p&p) and to buy a copy, simply email Steve at email@example.com
All proceeds go to the British Heart Foundation in memory of Dave.
