Smee & Blogg, The Singing Executioners

”There is always one act that stands out…last year it was...Penn and Teller. This year, the hands-down top crowd-puller is the Singing Executioners.”

2003 marks the twenty-fifth year these masters of macabre mirth have sung and danced their way across America. From Austin to Boston and St. Pete to St. Paul these bon vivants of brute farce have plied their trade at over thirty different Renaissance Festivals and Medieval Fairs.

In addition they have performed at corporate sales meetings, comedy clubs, a professional soccer game, a Charles Barkley roast and were once hired as backstage entertainment for the Rolling Stones.

In spite of all this public exposure neither one has lost his head over it.
Smee and Blogg take vaudeville antics to a new low-the dungeon. They are the inventors of gallows humor- “Who was that lady I saw you with last night?”…”That was no lady, that was the King's former wife!” They knock the audience dead with numbers like At the Block (hop), If I Were a Headsman and, of course, It's a Dumb Song After All. Careful, or they'll sell you a Dungeon Magician, an Ab Slicer or a six-week course from the Famous Executioners Correspondence School.

Al Olson and John Doering have been working together since the sixties. They started out as Fester and Carbuncle, a less than reverent musical act. Then came several years as Pumpkin with two different female vocalists and three part harmonies. An album was produced in 1979, “Goodies from O.D. Score.”

However, it was the creation of Smee and Blogg at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in 1977 that allowed them to abandon their physics and computer backgrounds and “hit the road.” The two also offer a country comedy act and an Edgar Allen Poe Christmas show.

If you want to leave your audiences rolling in the aisles it's time to bring in Smee and Blogg, the Singing Executioners. With time tested song, dance and jokes, the two offer what has become their trademark-side splitting material with painless execution.
