A duo who keep the Norfolk dialect alive through comedy and song have devised a new show.

Mundesley comic Pat Nearney and former Cromer singer guitarist Danny Platton are touring their new show, Yes - We're Still a Troshin - and looking for bookings in the area.

They teamed up six years ago after being part of Keith Skipper's highly-successful Press Gang show for many years.

The pair decided to keep the local fun going with their Norfolk Night And More, and Pig in a Wheelbarrow shows.

The new production includes Danny doing a tribute to Singing Postman Allan Smethurst and Pat delivering his rural stand-up comedy routines.

In the second half, as well as comedy stories, poetry and mime, they have added an Irish and skiffle section along with a singalong finale with old favourites and, they say, a few surprises.

Mr Nearney said: 'We have had the pleasure of working in village halls, clubs and theatres as well as doing parties and private functions all over Norfolk as well as in Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire and found audiences really appreciative.'
