POPULAR West Country comedian Jethro is appearing at the Wyvern Theatre tomorrow, when he stops off at Swindon on his Bull and Bonkers Tour.

With millions of DVD sales under his belt, Jethro has built up a legion of fans over the course of his long career.

Now he is offering a memorable evening of hysterical nonsense, with a peek into the circus lurking deep within the mind of this comic story teller.

Born Geoffrey Rowe in 1948, in a village called St Buryan in Cornwall, Jethro was apprenticed as a carpenter then worked as a timber man in a tin mine.

At 18, he joined the St Just and District Operative Society – and in addition to having a bass voice, local people soon realised he had a talent for making people laugh.

He started visiting the pubs of Cornwall to sing and joke, and quickly gained a reputation as the county’s top comic.

On television he has appeared on Treasure Hunt, Des O’Connor Tonight and Jim Davidson’s Generation Game – twice giving a demonstration on how to make a Cornish pasty.

He has also hosted his own show – the Jethro Junction on HTV - and appeared in front of the Queen in the Royal Variety Show.

He will bring stories old and new to the Wyvern stage, beginning at 7.30pm, and if you fancy a pie and a pint before the show, the theatre is serving up a pre-show meal from 6pm.

A meat or vegetable pie will be served with home-made mash, gravy and a pint of Hop Head beer, or a glass of wine or soft drink. The pre-show meal is £10.

Tickets for the show have sold out, but if you are lucky enough to have one and fancy a pre-show meal, call 01793 524481 or visit swindontheatres.co.uk.
