Comedian, actor, folk singer and TV presenter Jasper Carrott first came to national attention in 1975 with his Top Five hit Funky Moped/Magic Roundabout. Thirty-six years on, he remains one of Britain's best-loved comic performers. His many awards include a BAFTA (for Carrott's Lib) and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2008 British Comedy Awards; he has twice been voted TV Personality of the Year, and received an OBE in 2003 in recognition of his work for charity.
Having made several appearances on regional television during the mid-seventies, Jasper launched his first series in 1978. An Audience with Jasper Carrott was a storming success, earning him a Pye Award as Outstanding New Personality and turning him into a household name.
In six thirty-minute bursts of relentless stand-up punctuated by the occasional song, Carrott rants about everything from Spaghetti Junction to the Jersey constabulary, medicals to Monty Python... and infamously introduces the word 'zit' into the English vocabulary.
