Over 6 decades, Jimmy Jones paved the way for many of today's well known comics - most of whom still revere him as The Guvnor.His celebrity 'fans' include Royalty, ex-Rolling Stone Bill Wyman, famous former England soccer stars, the heaviest of heavy metal bands and a plethora of TV & Film actors. His stellar career, has been a journey that has taken him all over the UK and Europe, to a Las Vegas residency and a one man solo show at The London Palladium.
Whilst in America, he was once on an LA radio phone in and the first caller wanting to speak to him was, old friend Dudley Moore.....the radio show host was speechless!!
Having just turned 82, Jimmy still has his audiences crying for more on the very few one off shows that he performs.
Now, with the support of long time friend and fellow comic Mickey Pugh, Jimmy is starting The Guvnor's Farewell Tour, a tour which includes him returning to Castle Theatre. Jimmy says, “coming to The Castle again after all of these years is truly exciting and I can’t wait”.
Now with over 56 years in show business, Jimmy continues to be one of the UK's best loved and most successful stand up comedians. A true comedy legend to whom his fellow comics respectfully refer as -'The Guvnor'! Jimmy now does limited tour dates, and is available for corporate functions and events that suit his style of adult humour. The Guvnor 'takes no prisoners' - You have been warned!!!
