Jimmy Tarbuck

Tuesday 25th July at 7:30pm

Top television comedian Jimmy Tarbuck swaps The London Palladium for Lancaster

Tarby, as he is known to millions of TV viewers, is one of the country’s most evergreen performers and amaster of light entertainment.
Having successfully spent more than 40 years in the notoriously fickle world of showbusiness, JimmyTarbuck has hosted numerous television shows, variety shows, chat shows and game shows and his cheekygrin and boy-next-door charms have won him fans far away from his native Liverpool.
However, Tarby is at his best in front of a live audience and during his date in Lancaster he will be sharing anecdotes, demonstrating his quickfire wit and thoroughly entertaining the audience in a show which promises comedy for grown-ups rather than adult comedy.
During the entertaining evening, Tarby will be using photos and video footage to take audiences on a nostalgic trip down memory lane with a wealth of hugely funny stories and anecdotes ranging from being at school and in the same class as John Lennon to playing golf with Bing Crosby.
The Liverpool born comic and entertainer was spotted by the late Val Parnell while working as a Butlins Redcoat, and made his TV debut aged 22 on Comedy Bandbox. Soon afterwards he made several guest appearances on Sunday Night Live At The London Palladium for Val Parnell until he became the resident compere in September 1965, aged just 25 years old.

After this fabulous start to his career, Jimmy was soon in great demand headlining top variety shows, and soon his own TV series’ followed. During the 1970s and 80s, Tarby was rarely off the screen as programmes such as The Jimmy Tarbuck Show, Winner Takes All, Tarby And Friends and the Live From … series attracted millions of TV viewers each week.
Following the decline of variety on television, Jimmy is in much demand as one of Britain’s top cabaret artistes and after-dinner speakers, and he regularly hosts many of the top award and business events. He is also a popular TV guest and when he is not entertaining his corporate, television and theatre audiences can be found on the golf course or supporting his beloved Liverpool Football Club.
During his illustrious career, Jimmy Tarbuck has achieved many awards as both an entertainer and a charity fundraiser. He has received the top Variety Club of Great Britain award of Showbusiness Personality of the Year and he has been made an Officer of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem for his charity work. He has also been honoured by an hour-long special of This Is Your Life and in 1994, was awarded the OBE for his services to showbusiness and charity. Jimmy is also President of Diabetes UK.

Jason Byrne - the Man With Three Brains

Saturday 11th November at 8pm

‘The Man With Three Brains’ is a brand new show from the highly acclaimed and extremely funny, Jason Byrne.

Jason has three brains which kick into action when he hits the stage. His left brain scans the audience and room, looking for improv moments. His right brain collates stand-up material and stunts, poised to dish out the funnies at speed. His centre brain is Jason’s coach, pushing him to the limit.

The fastest thinking comic around will not only trip himself up, but probably you too.

It’s been a busy few years for Byrne.  In addition to his extensive touring worldwide, his Radio 2 show was awarded the UK radio industry’s prestigious Sony Radio Gold Award.  As well as fronting a brand new studio based comedy chat show Jason Byrne's Snaptastic Show for TV3 in Ireland, he is co-host of Sky’s hugely popular new entertainment programme Wild Things on Sky1.

Also seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC1), The Royal Variety Show (ITV1), The John Bishop Show (BBC1), and Father Figure (BBC1) of which he is creator and star.

Ed Byrne

Tuesday 20th March at 8pm

I originally intended to call the show, “I’ll Millennial You in a Minute”, but my promoter considered the title, “off-puttingly baffling”.   That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way.

Is life that bad or have we good reason to complain about it? Are we filled with righteous anger at a world gone wrong or are we all just a bunch of whiny little brats? In short, are we spoiled? Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out. Go on, spoil yourself.

‘Comedy’s Holy Grail. Go See!’  Sunday Times

 Recognized as one of the finest observational comics in the industry, Ed’s television credits are countless (provided you’re really bad at counting); Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo, The One Show, Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, The World’s Most Dangerous Roads and, most recently, he and Dara O Brian filmed the follow up their Big Adventure  show for BBC2 entitled Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay
