First and foremost a stand-up comedian, evergreen TV and stage performer Des O'Connor also had a string of hit singles in the 1960s. For many years, his singing was famously - and affectionately - sent up by comedy legends Morecambe and Wise.
'Des is the ultimate professional. The man is everything that showbusiness was meant to be - he's talented, polished and immensely likeable and liked’ (Mail on Sunday)
'Down to earth, good looking and self deprecating, Des has got wit and charm in bundles. Great numbers by some of the great song writers all fell under Des’ spell as mirth and music filled the theatre. Cheeky, cheerful and just downright brilliant as an entertainer, Des showed us all what a true gentleman of show business he is and why he is loved by so many. He is still pulling them in, still has so much to give and leaves so many others in his wake. A delightful night out and one I hope will be repeated' (Paul Thomas: The West London Times).
