Raymond Timpkins

The Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue is a music based, prop assisted, pun driven double act that invariably has an entire room in hysterics. It’s hard to really describe the act, although they are reminiscent of something from Morecambe and Wise, or The Two Ronnies. The whole thing is brilliantly put together, and the timing was impeccable, truly something to behold.
