Thread Name: Russ Abbott's Spinners parody
Subject: RE: Russ Abbott's Spinners parody
Definitely a one off star - I first saw him with the Black Abbotts in cabaret some time in the 70s - Talk of the North Club, Patricroft. Caberet artists, Chicken in a basket and bleedin' Watneys Red Barrel. Definitely stood out as something special even then.
Did I dream it or do I remember him actualy appearing as Guest on a Spinners show, or them with him?
Aside from the two Ronnies folk and Morris skits did any other popular comedians do parodies of folking folk?
