I thoroughly enjoyed Russel aka the Rock and Roll route master's first fringe season this is the second time i've seen him, the first being at a corporate event in London. He is knowledgeable, humble and entertaining. Highly recommended.

A really funny, diverting and fascinating hour with BBC London’s ‘Rock and roll routemaster’ sharing his encyclopaedic knowledge of contemporary music history and trivia on a journey of factoids, anecdotes and titbits that link Elvis Presley through to Queen with several stops on the way. A great way to spend an hour of your fringe afternoon and a lovely courtyard venue for a drink and a bite at the surgeons hall.

He's curated his trivia brilliantly to find exactly the right kind of quirky nuggets about well known performers that will entertain and surprise you - as well as covering some of the more general insight into the lives of the stars. I loved the repeatability of some of the anecdotes - portable bits of trivia which the audience can access and, no doubt, share with their friends next time they hear one of the featured songs or stars.
