Beat the Carrott
Jasper Carrott at his best!
Jasper Carrott has long been one of this country’s most well-loved comedians and this ITV special from 1981 shows him on top form. Recorded live at the London Palladium, the “Guv’nor of Conversational Stand-Up” showcases some of his classic routines from his 70s and 80s stage shows. Though he may be better remembered today for his turn in THE DETECTIVES (with Robert Powell), his crowning glory may well be BEAT THE CARROTT, which was so successful it resulted in a gold-selling comedy album of the same name. In this live set he lampoons the BBC, CROSSROADS, his early gigging days in fleapit theatres and even his audience!
This special will appeal to anyone who likes Jasper Carrott, THE DETECTIVES, stand-up comedy performances, humorous anecdotes, the AUDIENCE series and archive television fans.
