The differenceWelcome to Robert Rileys Odditorium;a travelling freak show that boasts mermaids, conjoined twins, and the worlds fattest man. Now the good times are over; advances in science have made these natural marvels into abominations and no one wants to see the show.Theyre poor, directionless and theyve just had to eat the horse; but Robert Riley is not put down so easily. If they dont want to look at the freak show any more, hell give them miracles...the miracle of change.

    Jeffrey Holland (Hi-de-Hi, You Rang MLord) stars in this one-man show about friendship, memories and a couple of remarkable lives. Set in the bedroom of a sick Oliver Hardy, the show takes place during Laurels visit to the dying man. Recounting their past success as the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy, this is a humorous and touching look at one of the great cinematic partnerships of the last century.
