Public Show[edit]

The public show was held in the big top (which leaked) and was compèred by Boothby Graffoe (comedian), who was then more-or-less unknown, but has now found fame and success, on BBC Radio 4 and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe amongst other places. There were two performances. (according to The Catch, Peewee compèred the public show and Boothby Graffoe compèred one of the renegade shows)
