I perform as an invited entertainer at many clubs, festivals and schools in many counties. But here are a few selected recent and future public performances . . .


But first, here are my current entertainments/talks:

One-Man Shows, Spring & Harvest Suppers



Sharing the lighter side of working for more than 20 years on the front line






Hilarious stories of village and rural life with witty comments on modern living.

(This talk is in its eleventh year of maturity – and has travelled the length and breadth of the country)


‘That’s Life!’

Short listed for Esther Rantzen’s That’s Life! Bob entertains with his own comical take on the pleasures, stresses and strains of modern living.


‘British Comedy Greats’

An affectionate laughter-packed stroll down British Comedy’s Memory Lane. Humorous banter – audio clips – and prizes too!



Twenty years at the Speaking game and so many avoidable and non-advoidable experiences to share
