Liza Pulman and Joe Stilgoe are A Couple of Swells

In a musical match made in theatrical heaven, Liza Pulman and Joe Stilgoe are A Couple of Swells at the Duchess Theatre, London on Monday 15th May in a brand-new show, featuring some of their all-time favourite standards as well as some classic duets, sprinkled with heaps of panache and a whole lot of dazzle.

Liza and Joe have music in their bones and audiences can expect an evening of pure musicality; original, artfully chaotic and quintessentially English, showcasing Joe’s virtuoso piano playing and Liza’s exquisite vocals.
A Couple of Swells combines their unique talent with warmth, charm and wit, promising a beautifully crafted, intimate, intimate and joyful night at the theatre.


Liza and Joe collaborated during lockdown on the mesmerising track ‘Bye Bye Blackbird’ from Liza’s new album The Heart Of It. Their recording received international acclaim and led to creation of this show: a magical pairing celebrating some of the best music ever recorded. The two super talents are back together and ready to put their own contemporary spin on the golden age of song, including much-loved classics from Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, Randy Newman and Billy Joel. Liza’s thirty-year career has encompassed music, theatre and comedy, from Glyndebourne Opera through West End musical theatre and as one-third of the British satirical comedy group, Fascinating Aida. Her solo career as concert performer and recording artist showcases a talent for rediscovering, reinventing and reimagining timeless classics and lost gems. Most recently, Liza Pulman Sings Streisand played West End runs to packed houses and five-star reviews, and a new show, The Heart Of It, started its 2023 tour at The Other Palace in London.

“Quite simply, superb… Liza Pulman is a force of nature” British Theatre
