‘So cheerio, you’ve been a grand audience, it’s always nice to play to yer own. See you again after the bingo’.
Remember Tommy Cooper? Tony Hancock? Al Reid? Jigsy does.
Over the last thirty years he’s worked with them all – and he’ll tell you the stories to prove it. With sweat, smoke and failure clinging to his faded dinner jacket, Jigsy relives his tale: the glamour and grit of his younger days, the horror stories of when it all goes wrong, and the success he might have had.
Starring Les Dennis, Tony Staveacre’s blisteringly funny new play lays bare the highs and lows of a northern comic mining the last laughs of the working-men’s club circuit.
