Holiday Spectacular. Dec 2011
Named after Chris Burke's character on Life Goes On, Corky Has A Band is a hyper-vaudevillian performance duo. Its members, Prof. Tickles and Sgt. Whiskers (pianists David Broome and Amir Khosrowpour) find various ways of brutalizing a piano, while exploring the extremities of the absurd. Their eclectic and unpredictable shows are presented through the guise of a variety show, consisting of games, skits and songs, all under a sparkling blanket of highly virtuosic improvisation. Sometimes humorous, sometimes crass, and sometimes heart-warmingly sentimental -- Corky Has A Band's Playground is a surrealist playground run amok.
