Jimmy Jones The Guvnor’s Last Stand

The Final Fond Farewell to Norfolk Audiences

Now with over 56 years in show business, Jimmy continues to be one of the UK's best loved and most successful stand up comedians. A true comedy legend to whom his fellow comics respectfully refer as -'The Guvnor'! The Guvnor 'takes no prisoners' - You have been warned!!! Jimmy Jones was one of the originals when the early Seventies saw the birth of long-running TV series The Comedians, followed by regular spots on Battle of the Comics, The Freddie Star Show, The Chas and Dave Show and Six O’Clock Live.

His outrageous gags won over American audiences at a triumphant début in Las Vegas in 1986. Jim Davidson and the late Benny Hill were huge fans, along with rock bands Iron Maiden and Status Quo, Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and actor Tom Selleck.

And Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Princess Margaret are just some of the Royal Family that have enjoyed Jimmy’s humour at charity events. In 1991 Jimmy achieved a life-long ambition by playing a sell-out one man show at the London Palladium.

His risqué humour may have kept him off mainstream TV but it’s also made Jimmy a cult comedian, selling hundreds of thousands of videos and DVDs.
