Reminiscing about false teeth


Years ago I was a member of a group of entertainers. I presented the variety acts on stage and did a bit of stand-up comedy and chat with the audience. The shows consisted of pop music and songs, a bit of classic music and opera, old tyme “Victorian” songs, a bit of dancing and comedy sketches mainly written by me.

We rehearsed for ages beforehand and did our shows in church halls, old peoples’ homes, Women’s Institute Meetings and so on; to raise money for charity and to entertain the old folks.

A particular sketch came to mind out of the blue the other day.

Imagine if you will, on stage a number of men dressed as nuns, led by a tone-deaf tenor with a strong pronounced accent, singing this beautiful song from the Sound of Music.

  1. Victor,

    I bet you caused a lot of laughs!

    I can't sing and wouldn't have the courage to perform in public like you. You roll your 'r's beautifully!

    God bless.

  2. Hi Sue,

    I don't sing well either. But acting in comedy sketches and ad-lib was fun. It was a group of about twenty people all ages. It was beautiful to have an elderly married couple: he in evening suit and bow tie playing the piano, and she standing beside him singing opera. We had youngsters doing Beatles and other pop songs. And others dressing up in Victorian costumes singing olde worlde type songs.

    God bless.

  3. Oh you make me smile!

    When I was a kid my grandmother used to pull her false teeth out and scare all us kids. Of course, we'd say, "Do it again! Do it again!"

    God bless you, Victor :)

  10. Hi Sarah,

    I'm glad you liked it. No, I did not write the lyrics. A friend did.
