Kit and McConnel | NMP Live
About

Kit and McConnel are the reincarnation of Kit and the Widow — an eye-wateringly funny ‘two men and a piano’ cabaret show featuring the fantastical Kit Hesketh-Harvey on vocals and the ridiculously talented James McConnel on piano.

Together, Kit – veteran of Radio 4’s Just A Minute – and James write and perform original comedy cabaret songs, on any subject, ranging from Jeremy Corbyn to Wet Wipes.

They studied theatre writing with Stephen Sondheim at Oxford, which was followed by further collaborations, Yusupov (Bridewell) and New Edna (Theatre Royal, Haymarket) starring Barry Humphries.

Currently resident atLondon’s The Pheasantry, the pairalsoprowl theatresand festivals up and down the UK – including theEdinburgh Festival, which theydo every year.

‘Kit and McConnel’perform at private parties, corporate events and, given the names (and any embarrassing facts) in advance, they will write a bespoke song about the host and/or all the guests.

If you like Tom Lehrer, Victor Borge, Fascinating Aida, Flanders and Swann or Anna Russell, chances are you'll like Kit and McConnel.
