Comedy legends Jasper Carrott and Alistair McGowan are joining forces to split the bill and your sides with a night of comedy stand up and impressions. Drawing on their wealth of experience the two masters of comedy present a show of pure laughter and entertainment that is not to be missed.

When the pair first teamed up last year for a one off festival appearance it proved a match made in comedy heaven and the chance to work together again was simply too good to miss. Splitting the evening between them, the mix of Jasper’s inimitable stand up and Alistair’s peerless impressions is a terrific experience for the audience and the artists alike.

Jasper took a break from live performance after a 40 year career that has taken him round the globe and seen him showered with awards including the prestigious BBC TV Personality of the Year and the British Comedy Awards Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2003 Jasper was awarded an OBE in Her Majesty’s New Year’s Honours List, in recognition of his outstanding work for charity.

He’s back now for what may be his final live shows, and thrilled to be working with Alistair. “After last year we both wanted to do more together. For me the chance to work with such an accomplished performer as Alistair is a dream come true. Just past my 70th year, this might be my last series of shows. It means I can go out on a high in the best comedy company.”

Don’t miss this chance to see the godfather of British comedy Jasper Carrott and Britain’s leading comedy impressionist at the top of their game, having a blast and delighting audiences in their unique way.

lAward winning comedian and comedy writer Andy Hamilton (co-creator / writer of Outnumbered, What We Did On Our Holiday, Ballot Monkeys, and Drop The Dead Donkey, star of Old Harry’s Game and regular guest on The News Quiz, Have I Got News For You, Q.I.) is back on the road this autumn with a brand new solo show.

In his 60 years on this planet, Andy has experienced many changes. For instance, he was once a 6’4” tall professional basketball player, until a tree fell on him. But, of course, change is an inescapable part of the human condition. Why? Is that fair? Some changes are good, some bad.

Why can’t they be more clearly labelled? How did we end up working longer hours? Where did all the sparrows go? If you’re feeling flustered because of flux, Andy will teach you how to cope with the changes we have seen and the changes yet to come. Contains mild peril. Victoria Theatre, October 27. Gig starts at 8pm. Tickets for both shows on 01422 305959.
