Here comes finally the second part. Sorry it took so long. As with the first part, which you can find here
, this report is a joint effort. I wrote down everything I remember but I also had help from a friend with explaining some jokes I didn't get and adding in little bits I missed. Many thanks, Audrey!
The blue song titles are all links, so you can at least listen to the original version of the songs, to get an idea which music was used. And, something I forgot at the first part - you need to imagine everything John says in a broad Glaswegian accent! Whenever he is at home (or talks to other Scots or his family), his Scottish comes out. After a while listening to this, you can't imagine him ever talking American again!
And now enjoy.
The second part of the show opened with the same song the first half had finished – “This is the moment”. Well, only some notes of the chorus, and the background singing actually. The scenery had changed to the deck of a ship, and the dancers were dressed as sailors, scrubbing the decks, throwing buckets and brooms from one to the next while dancing around. The Krankies and Ailsa wore maritime clothes as well.
Then it changed to the song “Come so far”
from the musical “Hairspray”
After the song was another solo-Krankie-bit with a few double-meaning jokes about “cruising”. Ian said he is not doing it as much anymore as he once did ;) Have you ever heard of SAGA cruises? It means “Sex and Games for the ancient”. At least according to Jimmy ;) Or did she say “aged”? Not sure on that.
But of course when you are on a ship, you need to be aware that there could be pirates. And you need to be able to do a bit of “krrrt and while Father Krankie said this, he demonstrated the art of throat-slitting. Jimmy replied that he never did any “krrrt” but has in fact done a lot of “pffffft” (and in case you need to know, it was the sound that comes out of the backwards regions of the body).
Father Krankie wanted Jimmy to clean the decks so you can eat from them. Jimmy asked: “Why, don’t you have plates?”
They weren’t done with the business jokes yet, again the phone ringed (much to father Krankie’s astonishment, that Jimmy was getting a reception out here at the sea)
“I have a new business - selling yachts.”
“Sales/sails are up."
Then Janette sang a special song called “Addicted ta ma phone”
. I’m honest, I didn’t understand a word LOL Well, apart from words like “Facebook” or “Tweet”. You can check out the song on the official Krankies channel on youtube though, there is even a video from the stage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pz3NGwi_ksY( Everyone came back on stage, and Aurora also appeared )
