Instant Sunshine

Yes, it's Instant Sunshine! Sounds like a holiday in the Seychelles or the latest high-fibre offering from Kellog's. But actually they're probably more of a cross between Flanders & Swann and the Cirque du Soleil. Variously described as the cutting edge of comic song or the evening wear window at Moss Bros, Instant Sunshine is three dinner-jacketed men of a certain age, singing their own humorous songs, gently mocking the British way of life.

Expert comic timing... genuinely literate cabaret.
