Cornwall is responsible for giving the world some wonderful things, Pasties, scrumpy, clotted cream teas (Jam first THEN cream!), that scene from Poldark with the scythe; but this little corner of the UK’s own Eden has also given us the world’s finest comic storyteller ever, Jethro, who returns to Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre on 21 July for another night of hysterical nonsense.
This brilliantly engaging comic returns to Eastbourne for just one night only, don’t miss your chance to take a peek into the circus lurking deep within the mind of, probably the greatest, comic storyteller ever to grace the stage.
Jethro beguiles and befuddles his audience with the endless stream of irreverent twaddle that has created a comedy genius over the past 40 years.
Jethro is something of a modern day enigma; his own website features just 3 paragraphs about him, forget about him having a twitter account and even his TV appearances (through his choice) are strictly restricted. Despite this he has become a cult-like comic with over 4 million DVD sales and hundreds of thousands of live ticket sales over his incredible 40-year career - which pay testament to the huge legion of fans that have followed Jethro over the years.
With stories old and new, live on stage, join him to celebrate his best tours and his best jokes as he delivers them in his warm Cornish accent that pulls down your defences, ready for the sharp-witted comments.
He has a unique comedy style and while he doesn’t look to offend with his jokes, be warned, it is not suitable for the vicar and strictly adults only! So head to Eastbourne’s premier venue and catch Jethro in 40 Years the Joker, at the Congress Theatre, Thursday 21 July. Tickets £21, book online or call Box Office on 01323 412000.
