Legendary comedian Billy Pearce returns to Doncaster as part of Cast’s Civic Favourites programme.
A national treasure, and without doubt one of Britain’s most talented and best loved comedians, multi-award winning Billy Pearce, has won just about every comedy award going, including a British Comedy Award, Solo Comedian of the Year, and Best Television comedy newcomer at the London Palladium.
There are few stages upon which Billy has not appeared, and he’s broken box office records at a number of national theatres. In 1993, Billy was honoured to be chosen to host The Children’s Royal Variety Performance screened by the BBC. His success in this prestigious show can be judged by the fact that he was invited to appear on the same show a year later. In total, Billy has performed in five Children’s Royal Variety shows and three Royal Variety shows.
Billy always delivers a great stand up show, and promises enough material for at least one joke for each member of the audience. His jokes flow one after another and with such velocity that it’s like being on the receiving end of a machine gun.
Billy was recently awarded the 2013 Yorkshire Arts and Entertainment Award. An accolade presented to the outstanding Yorkshire personality in the fields of art and entertainment with previous awards winners including The Grimethorpe Colliery Band, Clare Teal, The Kaiser Chiefs, Chris Moyles, John Godber and Gaynor Faye.
An Adult Evening with Billy Pearce comes to Cast, Doncaster on Wednesday April 9, 7.30pm. Tickets are £18.50 and are available from Doncaster Ticket Office on 01302 303 959 and at castindoncaster.com
