The Funny Side... of Covent Garden: Rainer Hersch, Kevin Precious, Nick Wilty, Jonny Freeman
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Brilliant comic star of TV and BBC Radio giving classical music a new dose of the Victor Borge treatment. He turns his comic skills on those awkward questions: 'Why is organ music so boring?'; 'How can I play a musical instrument without practising?'; 'What do conductors actually do?'.

Kevin Precious tour dates
No stranger to the circuit, he has won many awards and his TV appearances include Punt & Dennis, Rory Bremner and Paul Merton. He has also been warm-up comedian for Smith & Jones; in fact Mel Smith called him 'The best warm-up act in the business'. In 2004 Wilty hit the headlines for the wrong reasons after an unwanted genital piercing in a camping accident at the Glastonbury Festival. That didn't stop him compering the cabaret tent two days later. 'I decided to show the front row the close-ups on my digital camera. As I went along the line, their heads went back in disgust. It was like a Mexican wave of revulsion.' What a professional!
