Stefan Bednarczyk

"Suavely entertaining.... it is difficult to imagine anyone else inhabiting his piano stool... Superbly polished" TIME OUT

"Can there be a better interpreter of Noel Coward operating in the UK - in the world - than Stefan Bednarczyk ? .. Bednarczyk is a consummate performer- his piano playing is flawless and he exudes an irresistible charisma.....This is Cabaret at its finest". MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW

Following his acclaimed solo shows of Noel Coward and Flanders & Swann, Stefan returns to The Crazy Coqs to perform the première of his new show, "BEYOND A JOKE".

He now focuses on the rest of his education, and on the sometimes unlikely bedfellows who nestled alongside Coward and F & S in the all-embracing "Humour" section of his local record shop in the 1970's. Jake Thackeray, Allan Sherman, Tom Lehrer and Paddy Roberts are among the songwriters whose work he revives, showing how - along with the jokes and the brilliance of the writing - their parodies and satire remain as incisive, hilarious and sometimes as painfully relevant today.


Before and during the shows, cocktails, wines, champagnes and snacks are available. We would also encourage you to enjoy a meal in the Brasserie before or after a performance.
