Duck In Hell - Orville And Cuddles Have Grown Up

A green duck will be turning the air blue in Coventry when Orville, Cuddles and Keith Harris appear for an adult show.

The Duck Off tour has been a hit across the country, and was featured on the Jerry Sadowitz show on Channel Five.

Keith Harris, Orville the Duck and Cuddles the Monkey shot to fame on children’s television in the 1980s. At the peak of their success Orville scaled the charts with I Wish I Could Fly.

Keith said:

"The adult show came about by accident. I was booked to play Butlins and there you're always booked to play two slots.

“So, I just changed the act and did a more adult show in the evening .  It's still me, the duck and the monkey.  It's just that Cuddles and Orville have grown up".

Marketing and Events Manager Richard Elms said:

“This is just another example of how the Colosseum's promotional team are attempting to broaden the entertainment on offer within the city of Coventry, for the people of Coventry."

Keith Harris, Orville and Cuddles appear at the Colosseum on Sunday 26 November, supported by television's Valentine Flyguy.  Doors open at 7.30pm and admission is £4.
