Don't Shoot me, I'm STILL only the Piano player

Pianist/comedian David Scheel has made a speciality out of making fun of music, both classical and not-so-classical. So much so that he is now regarded as arguably the finest musical humorist in the world, in particular thanks to his international hit show, “Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only the Piano Player. Now, by public demand, David is back with the long awaited sequel, “Don’t Shoot Me, I’m STILL only the Piano Player!”

This is another wonderful blend of piano and comedy, full of lots of new material, including   Theme and Variations on a popular cell phone ring tone, a cutting edge, thought provoking (and very funny) look at how computers rule our lives, entitled When Harry the Mac met Sally the P-C,  plus perennial favourites such as David’s classic “translation” of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, all delivered in an amazing range of comic voices and accents. Plus, of course, beautiful piano music revealing David’s skills as a serious concert pianist. And not just the classics – in this new show David also offers up brilliant arrangements of Broadway hits and  his wonderful medley of the most popular tunes from the two world wars has already attracted much critical acclaim, even though it only recently premiered.

There will also be hilarious – and true – stories of music’s greatest eccentrics, from Bach and Beethoven, right up to Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber!

Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “the only show in town that can satisfy lovers of classical music and stand-up comedy alike”, and with David internationally acclaimed as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge, this concert is a must for anyone who wants to hear beautiful music and laugh themselves silly into the bargain.

In America, Broadway World magazine recently named David the funniest pianist in the world, and the media just call him “the master”. You don’t get a nickname like that unless you’ve earned it.
