KESSELOFSKI & FISKE - HISTORY

Beano Kids Liverpool 1981...





Early publicity for The Great Kesselofski (click to enlarge)

Paul Kessel and John Fiske first met in 1974 on a football pitch in Liverpool (7.84 Touring Company v the Everyman Theatre 1-3) and took an immediate dislike to each other.

Despite this, a year later they both became members of the Belt and Braces Roadshow Company (Paul played bass and sang, John played guitar and wrote the music) Following several tours of Sweden with Belt and Braces in the late seventies, Paul met someone in Sweden...well he became romantically attached actually.... and she had a friend and..well to cut a long story short they both moved to Sweden in 1981.

Finding themselves in a country that is ardently anglophile, John and Paul soon discovered two things about the Swedes: They are very good at English and they do like a good laugh.

Since moving to Sweden, Kesselofski and Fiske have written and performed a number of shows which they have toured nationally and internationally.




They have also performed regularly on Swedish television and have guested in the odd Swedish film.  ("odd" being the operative word here.)
Paul and John still play football but seldom with each other.
