Hilarious tales from a lifetime in showbusiness
12:31pm Friday 10th August 2012 in What's On
EVERGREEN performer, Jimmy Tarbuck OBE, will be swapping the London Palladium for Cheltenham's Bacon Theatre, for one night only on Friday, September 21 at 7.30pm.
Jimmy Tarbuck has enjoyed a hugely successful career, spanning more than 40 years. He has hosted numerous television shows, variety shows, chat shows and game shows and his cheeky grin and boy-next-door charms have won him fans far away from his native Liverpool. He is now touring the country with a brand new set, packed with hilarious and nostalgic tales from a lifetime in the notoriously fickle world of show business.
Tarby, as he is known to millions of TV viewers, is one of the country's most evergreen performers and a master of light entertainment. However, he is at his best in front of a live audience and during his date in Cheltenham he will be sharing anecdotes, demonstrating his quick-fire wit and using photos and video footage to punctuate his show; thoroughly entertaining the audience in an evening which promises comedy for grown-ups, rather than adult comedy. During his fruitful 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 for 'Show Business Personality of the Year' and he was awarded the OBE for his services to show business and to charity.
