Comedy Legend Jasper Carrott to Bring New Tour to Scarborough Spa

Jasper Carrott


Comedy Legend Jasper Carrott is to visit Scarborough Spa as part of his first stand-up tour in 16 years.

The Brummie comic is hitting the road later this year with his 'Stand Up And Rock' tour and will perform at The Spa's Grand Hall on Wednesday 18 November.

Stand Up And Rock, his first tour since the late nineties, does what it says on the tin: Jasper is back to his very best, mic in hand regaling the audience with his inimitable stand-up routines before introducing his musical compatriots that have been rockin' audiences all over the world.

As well as giving the crowd a giggle, Jasper will team up with long time mate Bev Bevan, who is known around the world as the drummer with ELO, Joy Strachan Brain from folk band Quill and The Move's Geoff Turton and Trevor Burton.

Jasper commented:

"The idea came to me a few years ago. A show with a few of my talented mates that mixes my stand up and fantastic music."

"We put it out locally in Birmingham last year and everyone from the audience to the performers on stage had a brilliant time, so much so that we wanted to do it again and do a few more gigs. We are looking forward to hitting the road and visiting the wonderful Yorkshire Coast."

Throughout his career he has been a mainstay or, as he became known, the Godfather of British Comedy.  His numerous television shows and series kept him at the forefront of British television viewing and his concert tours have taken him across the globe.

Awards and accolades have followed Jasper throughout his career including BBC TV Personality of the Year and the British Comedy Awards Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.  In recognition of his outstanding work for charity, Jasper was awarded an OBE in Her Majesty’s New Year's Honours List in 2003.

Jasper is the fourth comedian set to play The Spa's Grand Hall this November with Jimmy Carr (7 November), Bill Bailey (11 & 12 November) and Noel Fielding (21 November) all booked to visit the seaside venue.

Stewart Lee (15 May), Alan Carr (10 July) & Roy Chubby Brown (1 August) will also be appearing during the summer months as will Omid Djailli who will be reading his memoirs as part of the Books By The Beach festival on Friday 17 April.

Jo Ager, The Spa’s General Manager added:

"Jasper is another great name to add to an already impressive bill of comedians this year and performing alongside such talented musicians means both comedy and music fans are set for a great show."
