ONLY a comedian could turn the worst year of their life into a gigglefest but that’s exactly what Jim Davidson is doing.
Fresh from winning the most recent series of Big Brother by a landslide, the funnyman, who is never afraid to ruffle feathers, is embarking on a 54-date “warts and all” tour.
No Further Action will see him tell the story of his arrest and the nightmare 12 months that followed and the clearing of his name. He will also spill the beans on what happened behind the scenes on Big Brother.
The comedian, who shot to fame after appearing on New Faces in 1976, will be bouncing back in the only way he knows how, by entertaining people, and it promises to be the most outrageous, hilarious and fascinating show he has ever performed, but most of all it will be the truth - and full of insight.
“It was an interesting time, I had a rough ride for a while, but it’s great to be back on stage doing what I love, and the best way of dealing with a nightmare is to talk about it,” he said.
“I always seem to find the funny side of things - even this and then for a finale along came Big Brother. Wait till you hear the inside stories on that.”
Jim is not only one of the country’s best established comics, but one of the most popular stand-up comedians of all time.
Alongside hosting much loved shows such as Big Break and The Generation Game, his sell-out theatre tours and pantomimes have broken box office records.
During the 1980s he travelled the world performing for the troops, taking his own brand of entertainment to some of the most inhospitable places imaginable, receiving an OBE for his efforts.
Now he is back on stage with a bang doing what he loves best – stand up.
The tour reaches Stafford Gatehouse Theatre on October 22. For times and tickets see www.staffordgate housetheatre.co.uk or call 01785 254653.
