Chimney Sweep - Pete the Sweep

The sweeps can tailor their service to meet any requirements but normally they meet and surprise the Bride and Groom after they have left the church or other wedding venue and as guests are milling around prior to photographs. Their presence in the traditional dress of top hat and tails, complete with sooty face, vintage bike and cane rods and often accompanied by a street urchin, is guaranteed to enhance the wedding by providing additional photo opportunities. After bestowing the couple with sweeps’ luck we will stay at the wedding as long as required, to pose for photographs and mingling with the guests offering some light relief. As a finishing touch we give a gift to the bride and groom of a figurine of a chimney sweep made from coal as a memento of the happy day, together with a lucky Pete the Sweep certificate to remind them of the luck we should bring to their marriage.

Pickpocket - Keith (The Thief) Charnley

Keith ‘the thief’ Charnley has established a reputation as the finest pickpocket in Britain. Good pickpocket acts are rare but Keith is unique, in that he can work in any venue without the use of stooges and his innovative comic skills and quick fire ad-libs enable him to improvise in any situation. His busy performance schedule has taken him all over Europe and the UK and as far afield as cruise liners in the Mediterranean and Caribbean; as well as bookings by the best hotels, clubs and restaurants for conventions, corporate functions and trade shows. He also has many theatre and television appearances to his credit as well as theme parties and crime prevention seminars (even leading a ‘dipping team’ at Gatwick Airport to demonstrate how easily members of the public can lose valuables to a professional team). Keith is an impressive act of spontaneous visual comedy that crosses language barriers and provides a unique entertainment experience, whether as an after dinner speaker, close-up performer or speciality act.
