‘Frank and Ernest’, 1989
Frank & Ernest appeared. They were stand-up comedians from a bygone age: tired jokes, no sense of timing and relentless underlying attrition. They made cakes disappear; sawed live rabbits in half, while their glamorous assistant did farmyard smell impressions. They organised and compared The Palace of Delights, a series of epic cabaret nights in Falmouth at the Princess Pavilion and Victor Drago’s.
