Comedy legends Jasper Carrott and Alistair McGowan split the bill and your sides with a night of comedy stand up and impressions.
Drawing on their wealth of experience they present a show of pure laughter and entertainment that is not to be missed.
“Anyone who has never experienced Jasper Carrott, either live or on television will not be disappointed by this show. Complete with his guitar, this Carrott is certainly not past his sell-by date, Alistair McGowan’s performance towards the end of his set in which he displayed linguistic genius as the multi-lingual ‘Roger Federer’ is superb”
The Reviews Hub
“Jasper has this knack of being able to continue – and add to – a sketch so that it gets funnier by the second….my head felt like it was going to burst and I was laughing so much that, once again, I could hardly breathe.”
“I desperately wanted to see Alistair McGowan do his impressions…..He’s one of my favourite comedians – and he didn’t disappoint.”
Kevin Gover Winchester Today
“Although it’s been a while, Jasper Carrott, real name Bob Davis, is still a huge draw on his own, and coupled with impressionist Alistair McGowan and his uncanny portrayals of the likes of David Beckham and Sven Goran Eriksson, I feel quite confident this will be a show to remember.”
Danielle Roper Manchester Evening News
“…This show should come with a health warning. …I was laughing so much I could hardly breathe….”
“…One of the finest and funniest entertainment shows I’ve seen in a long time….”
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. There he discovered his talent for comedy, and his inability to sing; the rest, as they say, is history. 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.

The nation's favourite impressionist, also known for his brilliant stand-up and acting. McGowan is best known for his work with Ronni Ancona on The Big Impression (formerly Alistair McGowan's Big Impression), which spawned his culturally popular impressions of David Beckham, Sven-Goran Eriksson, Gary Lineker, Richard Madeley, Tony Blair, Ross Geller (Friends) and Dot Cotton (EastEnders). His one-man stand-up shows are also critically acclaimed. "Wickedly funny mimicry" - Sunday Mirror. "Even if Alistair McGowan wasn't an impressionist and stuck simply to stand-up gaggery, he'd surely be one of the best comics on the circuit. As it is, he gives us a double layer of excellence" - This Is Nottingham
