Increasingly observed fake biographies provide the inspired links in Clunes's guide to the Carmen Rock 'n' Rollers. A winningly stern presence in patchwork denim pant suit with a particularly perky strawberry blonde flick that would give Rula Lenska a run for her money, Clune seduces her audience with eerily accurate impersonations of such vocal and tonsorial talents as Kelly Marie (the bastardised brush-out) to the aspirational curls of Marie Osmond. "Does anyone here have any idea what this song is about?" she cries, knee deep in her spot-on rendition of Olivia Newton John's "Xanadu"? No, but we lap it up all the same. By the time she launches into her truly captivating Karen Carpenter, the audience are eating out of her hand. Jennifer Aniston, eat your heart out.
