Never miss another 'Henry Blofeld' show
TMS And All That: Henry Blofeld
"No one's views are more prickly and earth-shatteringly funny. The pompous, the politically correct, the prancing popinjays on every platform of life, are kicked unceremoniously into touch. 'Elf an' Safety are shaken until the pips squeak.
The name-dropping starts in spades with Ian Fleming in Jamaica and The Master, Noel Coward. Dear old 'Don't panic, Captain Mainwaring', Clive Dunn was another of his friends. Then Lawrence Olivier and Alec Guinness get a mention. But perhaps the tour de force is a story he tells about the old family doctor, Dr Bennett. It's a guinea-a-minute and more than an hour and a half of uncomplicated fun and laughter, which makes everyone feel a great deal better.
By the end, the entire audience is both Shaken and Stirred and positively itching for more."

The bubbly, boisterous world of Blowers knows no full stops. He is best known as a cricket commentator on BBC Radio 4's Test Match Special and BBC Radio 5 Live. He even occasionally turns up on Channel 4's 'Countdown' programme and is an amusing after dinner speaker. His idiosyncratic form of commentary is unique. His one-man shows have sold out across the UK, including the Royal Albert Hall. His stories about Ian Fleming, Noel Coward, Clive Dunn and others have brought the house down.
