"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.
