Video documentation of Bobby Baker's Table Occasion No. 19 (1997).
With the aid of two chairs, a table and a travelling cool bag full of special ingredients, Bobby Baker created, on each occasion, a new and unique performance to enhance any event.
"The Table Occasion shows were great to do, and have carried on way beyond the original planned 18. I got a bit sick of the rules after a while, so openly broke them whenever possible. Table Occasion No 4 proved to be a big hit so I’ve done variations of it countless times, often as a double bill with Cook Dems. I ‘cheat’ about the numbering as I’ve lost count and so No 4 is either 19 or 23 as they are favourite numbers of mine (being primes)." - Bobby Baker
