Burton Brothers Snake Oil

The Burton Brothers Presents: Snake Oil Is the story of two brothers and Jeremy Irons (tbc) rapidly descending into a world of chaos and milky business. The show is a fast-paced mix of sketch and original comedy songs with the brothers egging each other to the silliest of heights. 

From shoddy snake oil salesmen to creepy cult leaders, their absurd sense of humour and penchant for jazzy show tunes will have the audience bemused and laughing (tbc).

Written and performed by Josh Burton (Impromptunes The Completely Improvised Musical) and Tom Burton (Talkie Time With Jackie Lime).
