About The Edi Johnston Bit:
The Edi Johnston Bit puts songs alongside some typical English silliness too - Props, Jokes, Quizzes, Audience participation, Bingo etc all add up to a daft experience going beyond just singing some songs. Taking inspiration from Morecambe & Wise, Flight of the Conchords and Tim Vine alongside Old School Hiphop and Pop, The EJ Bit wants to play a bunch of silly tunes alongside a box full of bad jokes & props to ensure a truly memorable performance.
The Edi Johnston Bit is a chance to catch up with the daftness of life, put aside the thoughts of normality, and smirk your way through a set of songs and stuff designed solely to make you giggle & grin. He has supported Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer, Collapsed Lung & Unknown Era as well as in comedy shows alongside Andy Kind, Peter Bazely & in the Nottingham & Derby Comedy Festivals.
“Sometimes, you need a bit of laughter to pull you through. Edi Johnston is just the man to do that for you. A singer-songwriter armed with his voice, a ukulele and plenty of props, Edi’s tunes are full of gags that’ll have you smiling for days on end. Any fans of a good brew reading this? There’s a song for you. What about gingers? He’s got an anthem for you too.”( Leftlion.co.uk)
