Top television comedian Jimmy Tarbuck swaps The London Palladium for Middlesbrough Theatre!
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.
Having successfully spent more than 40 years in the notoriously fickle world of showbusiness, Jimmy Tarbuck 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.
However, Tarby is at his best in front of a live audience and during his date in (town) 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.
