An energetic comedian will take his 30th anniversary show to Weston next month.

Joe Pasquale will perform A Few Of His Favourite Things at The Playhouse in High Street on August 16.

The funnyman first appeared on the UK’s television screens in 1988 with an appearance on ITV show New Faces.

Since then he has regularly entertained the nation with stand up routines and TV sppearances for the past three decades.

Perhaps one of his biggest successes came in 2004 when he was crowned king of the jungle in I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! while he also learned how to skate in Dancing On Ice.

His latest tour will provide new material and a lot of mayhem.

Joe said: “It will be singing, dancing, music, magic, mind reading, painting and a lot of audience participation.

“It is me going out there and having a laugh – I can’t wait.

“I never thought I’d still be doing it 30 years later.

“I initially did it because I didn’t want to work for a living, but 30 years later I am still doing it.”

As well as his television work, Joe’s distinctive voice has also been used on the big screen.

He has provided voiceovers for films including Garfield: A Tail Of Two Kitties and Horton Hears A Who.

But the comedian says he is still as passionate about stand-up than ever before.

Joe added: “I love that feeling of flying by the seat of your pants.

“Also, it’s just you – you are the performer, the producer and the editor.

“You go on stage and you just go with the flow.

“I have a rough plan beforehand, then I just see what happens on the night.

“I like being scared – it makes you realise you are alive.

“Being onstage is like juggling two ping-pong balls with two hairdryers – you just have to keep going.

“I just love stand-up.

“I hate the travelling and getting stuck in traffic – that’s the curse of this job – but the buzz is still there every time I go on stage.”

Joe Pasquale – A Few Of His Favourite Things will be performed at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £17-20, are available online or by calling 01934 645544.
