Barry Morgan's rocket-fuelled hour of organ power
Barry Morgan knows how to rock a gold lamé safari suit like no other. And what better material for an outer space adventure than 100% manmade polyester that doesn't breathe?
In Out of This World, Barry lets loose his inner alien in 60 minutes of space-themed high jinks interspersed with lots of audience participation and clouds of spooky smoke. No medley is too cheesy - Space Odyssey, Dr Who, Star Wars, Love Boat. Wait - Love Boat? Oh never mind. It's all in the spirit of a time when entertainment was organ - centric and Captain Stubing and his merry band were prancing around in their short shorts and long white socks. Good times!
Barry is in his element in space - no wind to mess up his increasingly alarming mane of greying hair. What his routine lacks in lustre is more than made up for in the dazzling brilliance of his rocket-fuelled smile and his shoes.
