Show 396: Holy Smoke, 22nd September 2012, Stand Up World, Brussels

It’s been 31 days and still no new pope. Cardinal Luciano and Brother Benedict ask local PR man and former Hollywood star Antonio Tortellini for help, but Antonio’s mother Julia is still very much interested in her son’s career.

Lucilla and Lucy play the role of a chorus in this tale of family secrets, Prada-based couture celebration, and unexpected “Star Wars” references.

Featuring extracts from the popular ’50s movie “I’m In the Bath, Don’t Come In”, a spirited excursion to the Spanish Steps, The Collosseum, and Iceland, and a double- legged leaky deus ex machina in the extraordinary final scene. Is that a message from God, or just a piece of fancy lighting…..?
