The Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue are a prop/music driven double act, professionally dancing about and holding up words and pictures since 2004.
Drawn together by the irresistible force of showbiz in the mid nineteen eighties, Raymond and Mr Timpkins first chose to show off aboard the Portsmouth based pop band, ‘Uncle Barneys Atomic Wobblers’, until the natural forces of attrition bore down and the band distilled to the current ruggedly handsome duo.
Cutting their teeth compering and performing in Comedy and Variety nights at The Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea, the nineties wafted gently past until, eventually and not before time, London called. With the fledgling post-fix, "Revue", added, they blasted the clubs with their Guitar and Stylophone stylings, wowing rooms with super slick prop manipulation, dazzling jaded eyes with sandal based choreography that remains inimitable.
Now, they tour the country, regularly headlining at Jongleurs clubs, even venturing as far afield as The Falklands and Oman, to provide spiritual uplift to the brave boys and girls of the armed forces.
Their latest foray is into radio comedy/drama. A 1930s murder mystery based in Brighton and a re-telling of the Jack the Ripper tale have so far been forged in the red hot fires of their imaginations.
Available for any project from feature films to mini series. Book them. They're good!
"Your act, Raymond & Mr Timpkins were absolutely faultless.
The good thing about these guys is that they are so talented they can tailor make their act to suit any audience.
By the time this act had come to a close our Director was already approaching me for contact details as he thought they were so amazing. Tears of laughter filled the room that night and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Raymond & Mr Timpkins are a true credit to your organisation, I would not have any hesitation in booking these two again – Fantastic and very professional."
Berkeley Homes - December 2015
“A mad, anarchic triumph of stupidity over style. Not to be missed”
“Wonderful, innovative and endearing”
BRIGHTON ARGUS -
“Joyous. Pretty irresistible”
“Their versions of popular hits using just stylophone and acoustic guitar have to be heard to be believed. Someone should give them their own show.”
THE PORTSMOUTH NEWS
“Knockabout double-act with enough silliness to fill a pillow”
THE EVENING STANDARD
“An indulgent set of brilliant tackiness”
“TAKE 7’ MAGAZINE
By far the best double-act the UK has produced for many, many years.
A stunning act!
I have never seen anything as original as these guys.
Raymond and Mr Timpkins’ shamelessly silly pop spoofery was a big success.
