A music legend, Tom Lehrer’s work has ensured a lasting legacy ever since he largely disappeared from the limelight all those decades ago. With songs that had audiences laughing out loud and gasping with equal measure, he left a mark on the music world and still has his admirers to this day.

He had insights into a range of topics, from mathematics to musical theatre and politics, whilst his career spanned from the 1940s to the 1970s (and sporadically reappearing after that), so his success has helped him accumulate a wide ranging audience.

With that in mind there will be plenty of admirers of Lehrer’s work heading to the Ambassador’s Theatre in London’s West End this April as Adam Kay presents his work filtered through his own mindset and style. The result will be a memorable reinterpretation of Lehrer from a seasoned performer whose work has been seen up and down the country since he first emerged on the scene in the late 1990s.

So for those who are already familiar with Tom Lehrer’s work this will undoubtedly be something fresh as his well known work is not only presented through a new voice but also performed for a new generation. Fans will also notice that the title is taken from his 2000 album of the same name, which was a boxset featuring his work over the decades, plucked from releases like Songs By Tom Lehrer.

And if you are wondering if his work is in safe hands with Adam Kay then one only needs to look at his track record. The comic performer has been behind various well known television shows like BBC Three’s Mongrels and has appeared on radio productions like The Now Show. His credits also include writing for the likes of Watson & Oliver and Grandma’s House, whilst also appearing as part of the Amateur Transplants across the country.

The Remains Of Tom Lehrer is at the Ambassador’s Theatre – also the ongoing home of Stomp – on Tuesday 19th April 2016.
