Whatever Happened to The Martini Encounter?

A cocophony of comedy, ukuleles, banging toons and gin.

Enter the desperate and threadbare world of The Martini Encounter – a twisted cocktail of comedy, ukuleles, banging toons and the pianoforte. With gin.
Binkie, Maud and Colin have blood on their hands.

Having met at the Variety Club of Great Britain Rehabilitation Unit for the Criminally Deluded, this never refined but always eccentric, naughty and flamboyant trio reflect upon and hilariously recreate truly pathetic moments from their former ‘careers’ in what could very, very loosely be described as ‘showbusiness’.

The Martini Encounter return to Vault following their ‘Highly Commended’ show Who Shot Wayne Sleep in 2017. Other appearances include Glastonbury, Edinburgh and Latitude festivals, Bloomsbury and Leicester Square theatres, Pleasance London, Brighton Dome, Duckie and the Battersea Barge.

Two ukuleles, one piano, sublime vocal harmonies, occasional choreography (basic) and gallons of gin. Bottoms up!
