The Crescent Cabaret


This Premier York show is to be known as THE CRESCENT CABARET and is conceived, written and presented by the team that is responsible for Cabaret Saltaire Hosted and compered by SQUINTY McGINTY, agent to the stars. A bizarre concoction of ‘turns’ that are amusing, surprising or just crazy, that will have you ‘splitting your sides’ as you try to resist laughing at their irreverent take on the traditional working men’s club. In Saltaire, this is a show that sells out very quickly. After a run of over 28 presentations at the Caroline Club in Saltaire, the new show for York will include a selection of some of the favourite acts, including an introduction to the talented and skilfully ‘flawed’ club favourite, Squinty’s co-host, BILLY BUTTON! Not forgetting the main act, from Sheffield, the multi talented MAYNARD FLIP FLAP HERE


Why are we doing this?

In about 2013/14 Fiona came to work at Pyramid Gallery. Soon she took on the role as Manager. One day we might formalise this position, but for the moment, as long as Fi wants to manage the business, then I will just do as I am asked! Fi talked often about her position as events manager of ‘Woodend’ in Scarborough and a place she used to frequent called Eat Me Cafe and run by two great guys, Martyn Hyde & Stephen Dinardo.

They collected artwork by a remarkable man that we know as actor STEVE HUISON (one of the 4 main characters in The Full Monty and on TV as Corrie’s Eddy Windass). Fi wanted me to meet Steve and I was happy to do as I was told. I went to his ‘Shedio’ in Robin Hood’s Bay and took this picture and then agreed to putting on a show of his work.

Steve actually prefers his portrait to have a bit of attitude…


But I now know that there is a totally different version of STEVE HUISON known to the many fans of Cabaret Saltaire as SQUINTY McGINTY
flawed and irreverent, but charmingly funny, he has been the anchor to this cabaret for 7 years. And now, at huge expense and enormous risk to my wallet, I want to share this unique, quirky and sometimes cringingly hilarious happening with the citizens of York.
All the main acts are professional, and two are club groups. All are paid a modest fee. It is expensive to stage and Pyramid Gallery is underwriting the show if it makes a loss! This really is for fun, but also for charity. Proceeds from the raffle will go to St Leonard’s Hospice
The acts are well rehearsed by the individuals, but the whole presentation is done on the fly. No rehearsal. Squinty McGinty is unscripted and it is amazing what he can get away with! Spontaneity and calamities are all part of the fun.
The show will finish with Rock&Roll dancing with my favourite band …. York’s own

Ukulele Sunshine Revival

Please buy a ticket! I need to sell 135 to cover costs
