About

Kit & McConnel has an approximate set-up time of 1 hour.

Kit Hesketh-Harvey and James McConnel are old friends and collaborators. In 2011, they teamed up to become Kit and McConnel and have found great success selling out shows all over the UK. Now it’s time to welcome them to the SilverBlue Entertainment fold.

Over the Yardarm features their unique blend of wit and sophistication. Presenting freshly-baked songs and the heady aroma of topical irreverence, Kit and McConnel poke fun at everyday events and modern cultural happenings.

After a wealth of experience, these two men certainly know how to make an audience crease up with laughter and no two shows for Kit and McConnel are ever the same.

‘Wit, élan, musicality. Ritzy showmanship and stunning musical talent. I could barely write for laughing most of the time and the rest of the audience echoed. Be prepared to experience a wonderful, varied and hilarious cabaret show’

Reviews

‘Cabaret Royalty’

Time Out

‘Laden with both blatant and implied filthy references, each song is carefully and cleverly written. We know the punch line is coming but often the pair hold back, making us wait for that explosive comic moment.. A truly enjoyable pair to watch.’

Helen Whitcher, This is Cabaret

‘Achingly funny’

The Times

‘Flanders and Swann for the iPod generation’

Telegraph

‘Pure Class and heady shots of 24-carat wit. A privilege to watch’
