Brilliant comedian from NE of England
As I am from the North East of England I suppose I will be 'biased' towards Bobby Thompson, as I can imagine that not all will be able to understand the 'accent / dialogue'. The North East accent has always been a source of confusion to lots of people, but also, a source of fascination to others. Bobby Thompson embraces this in it's entirety, hence (one of the reasons) he stands as one of the North Easts' greatest ever comedians. His style is very much "Billy Connolly" where he talks about life in general, especially during and after the days of the 2nd world war. He started life as a comedian touring the North East club land, which was a very big scene during the 70's and 80's. Peronally, I don't know of that many (North East) comedians who had the pleasure of rolling up to a club in a Rolls Royce - but Bobby did, although no one would ever think so from his appearance 'On Stage' All in all - he is just one of the great comedians.
