Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jasper Carrott OBE is a British comedian, actor, television presenter and personality. Born in Shaftmoor Lane, Acocks Green, Birmingham, Carrott was educated at Acocks Green Primary School and Moseley Grammar School. He then worked as a trainee buyer at a city centre department store called The Beehive with schoolfriend Bev Bevan. In February 1969 he started his own folk club, "The Boggery," in nearby Solihull with his friend Les Ward, where Carrott performed folk songs as well as MC. Before long, his banter with the audience overtook the actual songs: he became known more as a comedian than a singer. He also worked as a musical agent, as Fingimigig, managing Harvey Andrews. He toured the UK, appearing in Rugby clubs and the like. He independently recorded an album, financed by himself, called "Jasper Carrot - In the Club," which he sold out of the back of his car/van. It was this album that contained the original "Magic Roundabout" - see belowshow more
