NEW! "BUSINESS OF COMEDY" Lecture for Conferences


NEW ! ONE MAN SHOW for Sports Clubs

It’s been a hard year for “the Cat” as President of Kent. Here he is watching them win at Glamorgan. Now he’s fully awake and ready for the winter circuit around the world including Australia and the West Indies.


 HEADLINES: From entertaining the Swedish Government in Stockholm and a dinner full of Judges and Magistrates in Worcester to a lecture on the BUSINESS OF COMEDY and a One Man Show at Maidstone United Football Club – the Versatile Cat!

 Not many comics and after dinner speakers are as versatile as “the Cat” as was shown in Stockholm in September.

Johan Gernandt (see above) spent some time in England as a young man and loved the music hall and English comedians. So for his 70th birthday he hired a dinner boat for 150 people and sailed round Stockholm with his friends and colleagues of the calibre of those shown above.

Bob spent two days in Stockholm testing what material would work and had a letter from Johan saying “this first, as far as I know, appearance of an English comedian (in Sweden) was a great success.” 

BUSINESS OF COMEDY - Bob has developed a brand new conference lecture both entertaining and informative about the whole business of comedy, how he started in the business, has developed his timing and delivery, how he researches for each event, Sweden being a good example. It is especially suitable for the after-lunch sessions at conferences.
