An uncanny portrayal of a legendary comedy duo will head to the South West.

An Evening of Eric And Ern, dedicated to two of the country’s most revered performers, Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise, will be staged in Bristol’s Redgrave Theatre, in Percival Road, on October 27.

Actors Ian Ashpitel and Jonty Stephens have been performing as Eric and Ern all over the country for almost five years.

The research into their subjects results in a staggeringly accurate portrayal of the legendary double act and the iconic routines, songs and sketches which made them famous.

As seen on BBC One’s The One Show and ITV1’s The Alan Titchmarsh Show, the performances also contain some new writing in the style of Eric and Ern.

The show will begin at the Bristol theatre at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on October 27.

Tickets, priced £23, can be purchased at www.redgravetheatre.com/events or on 01173 157800.
