“Warranted a season at the London Palladium”

Peter Hepple, The Stage newspaper 2006.

For the past 25 years Wayne Slater, aka El Loco, has been regarded by his peers as one of the most unique comedy speciality act of his generation. From his first appearance at an Eastbourne talent show in 1995, El-loco has brought a unique approach to comedy. Influenced by silent comedy performers, like Stan Laurel and Buster Keaton.

“It’s great to see the UK has produced a world class speciality act”

Leighton Bruce, Edinburgh Festival Guide 2005.

Wayne produced three El loco shows, “The Dentist Chair” “Beastro” and “Radio Grand Cafe”. Each show combined the arts of comedy, mime and magic, set around an oversized radio that played over 250 snippets of music, voice over’s and sound effects from the past 100 years. El-loco interacted with every single one of them without speaking.
