The Half-Naked Chef
Steve "Woko" Jackson, the Australian TV chef, gives a culinary demonstration that would make Delia Smith's hair stand on end. A non-stop send-up of every cooking show that’s ever been. a chain of events triggering a domino effect-leading to a loop of disasters which self perpetuate one another ad infinitum . A random chain of slapstick blunders that develops into a physical conceit of chronological disaster- with hilarious results.

He is not, I suspect, a chef. But he is indeed half naked. Get in early for this performance because some of the funniest stuff happens as The Chef reels in passers-by to join the audience.
Those of us who have already taken our seats are treated to a display of top-class street-style theatre with a cast who don’t even know they are in the show.
