About t'Bakewell Boys
Former stars of the golden age of British wrestling (allegedly), northern grapplers Jerry and Steakley Bakewell – The Fabulous Bakewell Boys – turned to the working men’s club circuit after wrestling was booted off television and money became tight.
With the showmanship and charm you might expect from star turns from a bygone era, the Bakewells bring their brand of double act mayhem wherever they go, unwaveringly trying their hand at (almost) anything.
Resident luchadores at the critically-acclaimed caberet siniestro show Lucha Britannia, the Bakewells are also available for cabaret, stand-up, live events, weddings, funerals and Bar Mitzvahs.
It has been said that the Jerry and Steakley would turn up to the opening of an envelope, and on more than one occasion, they have.
