Paul Foot: Kenny Larch Is Dead - 2341

Paul Foot
Apr 2nd 2013 | Warwick Goodman
British comic Paul Foot is onstage at a sold out Hi-Fi Bar wearing a shimmering silver jacket and his patented long-back-and-sides (but short on top) hairstyle, overflowing with rambling energy as he delivers his surreal and hilarious musings. He opens with a story of a woman who has the world's premiere collection of cheddar cheeses in her shed (with every kind of rare or novelty cheddar imaginable — Foot lists them). The shed is on a branch train line that hasn't been used in 25 years due to cut backs, and meanwhile, down the line, a neighbour grows a cucumber for a cucumber competition. “The cucumber gets so big that it slumps down over the fence and leans on the lever that shifts the tracks. “A woman's dream is over!” Foot screams as the train destroys the cheddar collection. Later, he brings out cards displaying what he calls Airline Anagrams. 'Cock Pit' becomes 'Cock Tip' and 'Air New Zealand Economy' becomes 'A Rayon Acne Mildew Zone'. It is a truly maniacal show.
