Oil be Damned

Laughlines were recently requested to entertain at a corporate event last week at The Vineyard, in Newbury, Berkshire, an award winning hotel and restaurant.  The Laughlines Fawlty Towers team gave a group of International oil companies an evening to remember.  Most of the VIP delegates were from all over the globe including America, Canada, Norway, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia, presidents and vice presidents attended (No… not President Obama… presidents of the oil companies)

After the first initial shock of Basil Fawlty appearing in the bar everyone started to enjoy classic sketches and a full on interactive comedy night…Well, the presidents must have enjoyed it as they were buying us drinks in the bar all night and couldn’t stop talking about the show.

Another great audience and very interesting people…many thanks to Masquerade Productions who booked us with their clients, we hope to work with you on many other events.

Pity I didn’t get the grand suite to stay in – it was just for changing into costume etc…. but we ended up in a lovely bed and breakfast down the road, breakfast consisted of one small piece of bacon, an extra runny egg and a chipolata sausage about the size of a twigglet!   Never mind I had a packet of hula hoops in the car and a bag of M & S mint crumbles for on the way home!  I should be on flipping commission here, naming all these company brands!!
