Some recent comments in "The Stage" newspaper
"It was a relief therefore for the stage to be taken by a proper funny man, Arnold Gutbucket, who proceeded to take over the compering duties for the rest of the night. He is unique, but his oddball approach works because he does it with warmth. Abstract and clever, he says and sings some pretty outrageous things but gets away with it.
The National Anthem sung to the tune of EastEnders was gloriously disrespectful but hilarious."
"Describing Arnold Gutbucket purely as comedy gives no clues as to the fabulous eccentricity of the man.
Really original comedians have always been thin on the ground and the likes of Mr Gutbucket are light entertainment treasures.
He’s a fine raconteur, sings delightfully silly songs and knows how to work an audience to maximum effect.
