Manic idiot violinist Sid Bowfin- unpredictable, unhinged, and unique. It’s the funniest and most ridiculous concert you'll ever see.

Our virtuoso combines madcap comedy with superb musicianship. Watch Sid and his audience compete, argue, ridicule and seduce their way through the most popular works from across centuries, turning classical performance on its head with Sid's hilarious spontaneous comedic antics.

Crowds will revel in his renditions of Mozart’s one-legged Rondo, Vivaldi’s secret agent Winter, Brahms's Hungarian dancers and Rossini’s choir of barbers. There’s even Sid’s legendary ‘requests section’. 

Enjoy classical comedy for the masses. It’s the Sid Bowfin Show!

If you want a completely live ensemble experience, consider The Bowfins. The trio can be as ridiculous as Sid Bowfin on his own, or as well behaved as you wish, with plenty of repertoire to appropriately entertain the most genteel gathering.


Ask us a question, we'd love to chat!
