In his inimitable Cockney style he lobbed out a host of gags and funny stories to a near sell out audience.

It was a fun night full of wonderful jokes from the trials and tribulations of the toilet facilities at motorway service stations through to childbirth and supermarket shopping.

There was plenty of laughs from the former star of BBC1’s ”’They Think It’s All Over” who is back on the road with his brand new show “Mucking About” which takes in dates and appearances around the south of the country.

And there was plenty of it on offer throughout his 60 minute-plus appearance as he explored the eccentricities of clothes shopping through to a hilarious routine of ruining his sex life while joining the Army.

The show was devastatingly funny and hugely entertaining and he was supported by fellow London comic David Whitney whose routine ranged from oral sex to Brexit and his Scottish ancestry to banking and tax returns.
