Nelson Aspen Makes West End Cabaret Debut

Nelson Aspen Makes West End Cabaret Debut Veteran Entertainment Personality/Author Nelson Aspen makes his West End cabaret debut with "Just in Time" at the showroom at Crazy Coqs, Live at Zedel in SoHo. One night only, Sunday October 21, 2018.

Known to millions of international TV fans as their "One Degree of Separation" from Hollywood's A-list, Nelson Aspen returns to the cabaret stage after sold out runs in New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and around Australia including the world-famous Sydney Opera House. "Just in Time" traces Aspen's musical path through various genres as he carved out his unique niche in the showbiz community. He began his 25 year career in breakfast television with the UK's own "This Morning with Judy and Richard" before moving on to long stints with "GMTV" and alongside his fab friend, TV icon Lorraine Kelly. Since 2003, Nelson has served as the Entertainment Editor for Australia's #1 Morning programme, "Sunrise" and recently received his third nomination as the Publicist's Guild International Media Journalist of the Year. "And it all started by being commissioned to train Princess Diana in that 'hot new workout of 1990:' Step Aerobics," he laughs. But that's a yarn he'll save for the stage!

Nelson's scheduled special guest star will be acclaimed British mezzo soprano & 2018 BRIT Award nominee Carly Paoli. Having duetted with Andrea Bocelli and Jose Carreras, beautiful Carly has performed all over the world for everyone from HRH The Prince of Wales to Pope Francis. Alongside Nelson, she'll show off her more lighthearted musical side with all the power and talent that make her one of today's most exciting classical stars.


With humor and expert storytelling skills, Aspen shares songs and stories everyone will recognize from their own pop culture experiences and will also welcome a special Surprise Guest Star for a turn at the microphone. "Just in Time" follows up his popular "Full Circle" show from 2015/16, which included appearances by Anita Gillette, Shelly Burch, Deven Green, Monica Horan, Ilene Kristen and other stage/screen stars. You never know what famous faces might turn up onstage or in the audience when Nelson Aspen performs.

Asked to describe his eclectic mix of music and merriment, Aspen said, "Imagine going to Studio 54 for a dinner party with Irving Berlin, Julie Andrews, Barbara Eden, Harry Connick Jr and The Captain & Tennille!" And he ought to know...in addition to his long TV career, he has authored books including "Let's Dish Up A Dinner Party!" "Hollywood Insider: Exposed," "My Prime Time" and "Dinner at Nelson's." "I used to think I was born 40 years too late, but my musical experience has shown me I was actually born...Just in Time!"
