And Two Very Special Guests! 

So amazing, we can’t even mention their names. Suffice to say, these international superstars, stars of stage and screen, are known both individually and as a duo, and have received rave reviews from such publications as The New York Times and The Guardian (UK). One writes: “This mystery guest has performed many times for Porkpie Productions, and amazingly always comes back for more. Hailing from the UK, his freakish ability to shock and entertain in equal parts remain his artistic Raison D'étre.”
