Go To

A cowboy-obsessed snooker whizz, Billy "The" Kidd and his manager "T.O.", so-called because he considers himself "The One" to make or break snooker stars, are tricked by a cockney crime syndicate into entering an illegal underground match against the current world number one, Maxwell Randall, a middle-class vampire. Its a musical.


Billy The Kid And The Green Baize Vampire provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Duels Decide Everything: When Billy and Max insult each other over the newspaper interviews they give, it quickly leads to a snooker match, with the loser banned from ever playing in the circuit again.
  • The Musical: Everybody sings. Even the host of the crime syndicate's underground snooker match has a musical number about the fact that snooker is the most important thing in the world. Which probably explains why he looks like he shudders with ecstasy just from thinking about it.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: The hero is a six-gun-toting cowboy-fanboy turned snooker professional. His agent has ties to organised crime. His fans are a street-gang of arcade nerds. His rival, the snooker world champion is a Vampire.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: The world champion is a vampire who uses his psychic powers to win snooker games. His sire lies in a glass coffin under the baize of a marble snooker table. He dresses in evening wear at all times. On the other hand, he also has a wife and a poodle and likes to read the daily paper.

  • Serious Business: The world of snooker is apparently so important that it draws the meddling influence of the criminal underworld.
