“Ida Barr is in the house. Break it down dear, thanks very much!”

Ida Barr is an old age pensioner who has embraced the music of today’s yut with her own brand of rap which she has dubbed Artificial Hip Hop. If you’re a lover of fresh and funky phat rymes and beats about prescription medication, multi-cultural Britain and home helps who, due to phobia, are unable to dust dado rails, then you’ve found the MC for you.

Ida Barr is a music hall singer who has embraced hip hop and rap, reflecting the culturally diverse landscape of the London’s East End, where she has been living in retirement for several decades. She lives in Thabo Mbeki Court, shops at Lidl, has a warden called Mrs. Gupta, and a friend called Maude Edwardes (an elderly male impersonator with a shady past). She’s an inner city pensioner in multi-cultural post-new Labour Britain; her glory days are behind her but her creativity is still flowering.

Ida Barr is a dab hand not only on the M.I.C., she also is an amazing MC on the wheels of steel. Ida is the perfect novelty comedy DJ for your party or event. She’s played at some of the biggest parties on a couple of continents, so if you’re looking for the best mix of upbeat party choons and feel-good disco look no further than Ida Barr, comedy DJ.

Ida favours the mashup. That mix of styles that fuses together two or more tracks into one. She does this with fearless skill so you find yourself dancing to banging RnB with a light ent flavour, in a set which has your brain reeling with stimulation as tracks from all musical genres are fused with kicking beats that keep your feet in extacy.

Ida has DJ’d at private parties, corporate functions, arts events. This can be incorporated with a comedy stand-up set. Either way it’s very likely that everyone will end up doing the Hokey Cokey to a crunk beat.

Ida has released several albums, Artificial Hip Hop and Slipped Disco. Her latest is called “Get Old Or Die Tryin’”. Ida is the star of her very own film which you can see on the multi-media page. You’ll be thrilled.

Ida is the host of her own brand of bingo, featuring her patented calls, such as Idi Amin – 15, or I don’t speak Urdu – 22.

This show and Ida’s other shows have played all over the world, on a variety of media.

Ida really is “the people’s pensioner”. She has a legion of fans, and you’ll be one too soon.

The real Ida Barr was a music hall singer from the 1900’s and is the inspiration for award winning writer and actor Christopher Green’s who has recently co-written and performed in smash hit show Office Party.
