Legendary comedian and TV personality Jasper Carrott is to return to The Baths Hall almost 40 years after his last, iconic performance.

The Birmingham-born comic put Scunthorpe on the map as he recalled his show at the venue in 1975 on his legendary Live at the London Palladium performance.

It has now been announced he will return to the town for a show at The Baths Hall on Friday 5th September 2014.

At his Live at the London Palladium show, Jasper recalls being booked for an appearance in Scunthorpe following the success of his hit single Funky Moped.

He claims to have been booked as a band, rather than a comedian, and that staff at the venue were shocked to find him turning up alone, without other musicians.

Dan Harris, general manager of The Baths Hall, said: “Jasper Carrott’s performance at The Baths Hall on 15th November 1975 was immortalised on his Live at the London Palladium recording.”

“It will be almost 40 years since that famous performance in Jasper’s early days as a comedian. I’m sure there will be plenty of interest in the show including the return of many of those who saw him first time around.”

Tickets, priced £22 and £20, are on sale from The Box Office on 0844 8542776 or at www.bathshall.co.uk
