Comic favourite Jasper Carrott is hitting the road again - and will be coming to Yorkshire later this year.

The Brummie stand-up will be coming to York’s Grand Opera House on November 24 with Stand Up And Rock.

A career that has spanned five decades first started when Jasper became resident compére at the Boggery Folk Club in Birmingham in the mid-seventies. There he discovered his talent for comedy, and his inability to sing; the rest, as they say, is history.

A hugely popular stalwart of the British folk club scene, his comedy single Funky Moped shot to the top of the British pop charts in 1975, establishing him as a household name overnight. The flipside was his take on the legendary Magic Roundabout, a record still sought out today by a whole new generation of fans.

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.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at £26 on 0844 8713024 or at
