Puppet master holds all the strings at Radlett Centre

Puppet master Paul Zerdin is bringing his brand-new show to The Radlett Centre on Saturday (25).

The comedian ventriloquist has redefined his art for the Twitter age and continues to push the boundaries of puppetry. The show finds him at the centre of a twisted, puppet-based sitcom featuring sprightly old timer Albert, gobby pre-pubescent Sam and Baby.

Paul has played to sell-out audiences at both the Edinburgh Festival and around the country and has headlined Variety Live at the Palladium with performers from Cirque to Soleil.

The performance begins at 7.30pm and tickets are £17.50/£16.50, available from the box office on 01923 859291 or go to www.radlettcentre.co.uk.

A re-creation of the Benny Goodman Orchestra’s return to Carnegie Hall in 1939 can be seen at The Radlett Centre this Sunday. (26)

Pete Long and his Goodmen have performed Benny Goodman’s famous 1938 Carnegie Hall concert over 50 times in the last decade. Now they are moving on a year when King of Swing Benny shared the bill with the new kid on the block, Glenn Miller.

Both bands were out to impress. Goodman wowed the audience with his big hitters such as Sing Sing Sing, Don’t Be That Way and Tain’t What You Do while In the second set, Miller gave a taste of his hits to come with Moonlight Serenade, In The Mood and Little Brown Jug.
