Jasper Carrott first came to national attention in 1975 with his hit Funky Moped/Magic Roundabout. Thirty-five years on, he remains one of Britain's best-loved comic performers. His many awards include a BAFTA and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the British Comedy Awards. He has twice been voted TV Personality of the Year, and received an OBE in 2003 in recognition of his work for charity. This DVD is a perfect chance to see Carrott at his best.
Having made several appearances on regional television during the mid-seventies, Jasper launched An Audience With Jasper Carrott in 1978. It was a storming success, earning him a Pye Award as Outstanding New Personality and making him a household name. In this set, audiences will finally get to relive the joy of listening to the beloved comedian as he rants about everything from Spaghetti Junction to the Jersey Constabulary; medicals to Monty Python; and the infamous introduction of the word 'zit' into the English Vocabulary - all in this set of six thirty-minute bursts of relentless stand-up punctuated by the occasional song.
