In 1698 Thomas d’Urfey published the smash-hit book of comic songs, Wit and Mirth. David William Hughes sings some of them, some of his own, and some of yours which he’ll make up for you. ‘A hoot, a bawdy entertainment, and a display of consummate musicianship which brings tears to the eyes both of laughter and sadness’ **** (ScotsGay.co.uk). ‘Hilarious’ **** (FringeGuru.com). ‘A witty gem’ **** (MusicalTalk). ‘Accomplished musicality and bawdy ribaldry’ **** (The730Review.co.uk). **** (Advertiser, Adelaide).

Sooo funny. Prepare yourself to have a blast.
Wit & Mirth combines comedy with hillarious songs played on the piano and sung by David, who interacts beautifully with his audience. Some of the material is historical and hysterical. Absolutely loved it and couldn't recommend it more. *****
