Welcome to LipService Theatre!

LipService – A Life of Laughter

I want to thank everyone for the lovely messages of support following the death of Maggie Fox, my comedy partner of 40 years. Sorry I've not been able to respond to you all personally but it has meant so much. We made a tribute film to Maggie as part of the Chorlton Arts Festival. You can now watch it for free on our YouTube channel here

It's an interview recorded in 2021 about our life in comedy and theatre interspersed with extracts from Jane Bond, B-Road Movie!, Inspector Norse, Horror for Wimps, Withering Looks, Move Over Moriarty, Desperate to be Doris and many more. We do hope you enjoy it.

Trailer for Château Ghoul

We will be presenting a digital version of the live Chateu Ghoul stage show, which was cancelled mid tour after recent events. With pre-filmed footage starring Maggie Fox & Sue Ryding, plus a surprise new character to help with the live interactive sections, this will be delivered over Zoom. Dates and times to be announced later in the year.
