Jasper Carrott: Comedian

In 1975 Jasper released his first single. Funky Moped / Magic Roundabout, was a massive chart hit; selling almost a million copies and narrowly missing a Gold Disc. Jasper’s first television appearance was in The Golden Game for BBC Midlands, in 1975. His first television series was aired in 1978, ‘An Audience with Jasper Carrott’ for LWT; a series of six shows which made him as a comic.

Jasper Carrott: Comedy Style

His style and delivery were different and original for the time. In 1979 Jasper was named as ITV Personality Of The Year; and his live TV show from the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane ‘The Unrecorded Jasper Carrott’. This remains unique as a live to air one hour comedy show. Since then Jasper’s national and international tours have taken him to many corners of the world.

Award Winning

In 1982, Jasper conceived and co-wrote the live series “Carrott’s Lib”, which won a BAFTA Award the following year. 1985 saw him star in the stage play ‘The Nerd’ and, in 1988, the film ‘Jane and the Lost City’.

In 1992, Jasper was named BBC TV’s Personality Of The Year; and in this year teamed up with actor Robert Powell to record ‘The Detectives’. A comedy series based on the ridiculous antics of two bungling detectives. The success of the initial series has resulted in four further series of ‘The Detectives’; with a Christmas Special in 1997.

Carrott’s Commercial Breakdown

He has regularly presented a Christmas special for the BBC, either in the form of the hugely successful “Carrott’s Commercial Breakdown”, with over 14 million viewers, which won the Best Independent Prize at the prestigious Montreux Festival and a Gold medal at the New York TV & Film Awards, or as a television special such as “One Jasper Carrott” recorded live at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
