Personal Quote:

It took me two hours to be made up as Father Jack. I found it repulsive. If I was in costume, nobody would sit beside me. And I don't blame them. I had vaseline coming out of my ears as discharge, incontinence marks on my trousers, prosthetic teeth which I took out to eat, and one blind eye with an opaque lens.


Scored a UK Top 30 hit in December 1983 when the humourous 'Christmas Countdown' (a spoof of The Twelve Days of Christmas) reached 26 in the UK singles chart. He later received a letter from the Queen explaining how the record had given her "great pleasure". See more »
