Woody Allen, Janie Marden, Lisa Shane, Acker Bilk, the Hamarnies (spelling?), The Castors
presenter: Jimmy Tarbuck

Review (from the 01June1966 issue of Weekly Variety):
Prince of Wales
Currently playing in "Casino Royale," American patterman Woody Allen did the fresh air bit for this otherwise routine variety bill. His nervous, 1966-neurotic act was a joy to the more sophisticated, with something left over for most of the rest. He got home strongly with the latter on several occasions with his more obvious sex whimsies.
Major drawback on this stint was his lack of time. It seemed no sooner had he got sparking than he was hauled off (leaving with a "gesture of intense symbolism": the jacking up of the 45 degreed mike). But his brief spot served to underline the need locally for a hip counterpart who could operate on this level of psycho-humor.
By stark contrast, Jimmy Tarbuck brought forth some inane gags; a low line of fun which could not be propped by the cheeky personality which permeates his hosting chore.
A refreshing spot came from Janie Marden, who was in great form with "On A Wonderful Day Like Today" and "Who Can I Turn To?" Her true voice, style and delivery mark her as one of the brightest talents since Shirley Bassey.
Barbra Streisand's stand-in, Lisa Shane, tipped to take over the former's "Funny Girl" role, next month, came on powerfully to inject zest into "Don't Rain On My Parade" and feeling into "People." Slick though the latter attempt was, it fell short in comparison with the Streisand version on which it heavily leaned.
The infectious good time jazz of the Acker Bilk unit was a foot-tapping interlude. And the Hamarnies practiced their juggling skills to an incredible degree. But such accomplishments have become so commonplace on TV that the effect was limited. The logrolling Castors suffered a similar ill-deserved fate, for their similar act.
