Mat Ricardo's London Varieties

Mat Ricardo's London Varieties: Episode 1 (Street Performers)

Live from the Bethnal Green Workingmen's Club, Mat Ricardo hosted Craig the Incredible Hula Boy, Mandy Muden and Big Howard & Little Howard, and then sat down for a chat with Andre Vincent, Rob Ballard and Matt Barnard - three of the UK's most respected street performers - for a look at the life of a professional busker. (Apologies for the sound quality - we had some issues on the night, and subsequent shows will be dramatically improved!)
