The Amateur Transplants

A few of us from work went to Indigo2 at The O2 recently to see a wonderfully smutty musical performance by Adam Kay and Suman Biswas – better known as The Amateur Transplants.

Adam plays the piano while they both sing along to the tunes of a variety of popular songs. The difference is that these two bright sparks have re-written the lyrics into some dangerously, funny and politically incorrect prose. It is so near the mark at times that they actually score a bulls-eye. I laughed, cringed and wiped the tears away simultaneously. The subject matter frequently prompting me to ask myself in disbelief -‘did they really say that?!’

Both are doctors – they studied medicine at Imperial College London – and this is reflected in many of the lyrics of their songs. It was also very obvious to anyone who eavesdropped at the bar during the interval that the audience was unsurprisingly comprised mostly of doctors, nurses and ambulance staff. Waves of gasps and laughter frequently swept through the crowd in recognition of the all too familiar themes covered in their parodies.

If you are someone who can see laughter in anything then you must definitely not miss them next time they perform near you. However be warned, it is not for the faint-hearted!
