A career that has spanned five decades first started when Jasper became resident compére at the Boggery Folk Club in Birmingham in the mid-'70s.

Apart from his stand-up comedy and TV shows such as 'Carrot's Commercial Breakdown', this award-winning Brummie comedian is probably best known for his spoof police drama with Robert Powell, 'The Detectives', and his undying passion for Birmingham City FC.
