Freakish performers set to compete in Greenwich's Got No Talent swan song
A chilli powder snorting maniac, a poet with Tourette’s and a schizophrenic singer are just a few of the freakish acts competing in one talent show’s grand finale.
Greenwich’s Got No Talent is finally coming to an end after two years of showcasing the borough’s craziest, bravest and weirdest performers.
Vibe caught up with one finalist, Sandy Foster (aka Lovely and Jason), to find out all about her creepy act.
She said: “Lovely and Jason (a baby doll) are a musical duo who tell the audience they tour around primary schools with their show Morals for Minors.
“They sing songs with strong moral messages to help children – but I would probably get arrested if I actually took these songs into schools.
“One song, Little Lamb, is about relationships and loyalty.
“A little girl who’s nine has a lamb who she pushes around in a battered pram, but he runs away every day.
“With each day comes more pain and misery.
“On the third day she’s had enough and she can’t sleep worrying he will grow up into a sheep and won’t be hers anymore – so she cuts his legs off.”
Sandy’s black comedy act, which always starts off sickeningly sweet, sometimes baffles audiences.
But the rowdy crowd absolutely loved her when she became a runner up in the last Greenwich’s Got No Talent.
The 30-year-old actress continued: “I always wear pink outfits and put on a baby voice so it’s all really sweet.
“Then it gets darker and darker – all my songs are very dark.
“Jason, the tiny baby doll is the angry, domineering one of the duo.
“She talks to him throughout the act.
“She’s clearly deranged and mental to the audience and believes Jason is an artist in his own right.”
A professional actor, Sandy began making music and touring as Lovely and Jason to give her comedy act a unique and quirky hook.
“I started pushing this act because I’ve had about a year of not getting any acting work at all.” Sandy added.
“I did this to stop me from going mad, ironically.”
The imaginative song writer will be up against a whole host of bizarre acts at the last ever Greenwich’s Got No Talent on Sunday, November 4, in the Morden Arms.
She said: “I really hate Britain’s Got Talent and X Factor and I liked the fact this show is a finger up to that whole thing.”
Hosted by Simon Foul, aka Mark Biddiss, along with the judging panel of Lady La La, The Dedwood Woodwood Twins, Naomi Shambles, The Greenwich Gimp and Mini-Me-Simon Foul, the show will also feature a video message from a very special guest.
The show starts at 3pm and is free to go along to.
