FUNNYMAN Jim Davidson brings his adults-only humour back to Clacton this Sunday.

The self-styled people’s comedian” returns to the West Cliff nine months after entertaining audiences with his Charlton Nil show.

Jim Davidson – Live! promises more no-holds-barred laughter as he "tells it like it is" in an antidote to political correctness.

One of entertainment’s best-known faces, he has hosted classic BBC game shows the Generation Game and Big Break, as well as being a veteran stand-up funnyman.

Since appearing on TV’s New Faces in 1976, he has topped theatre bills in London’s West End and at major theatres all over the country.

He has starred in a series of prime time TV shows, headlined record-breaking summer seasons and pantomimes, and played highly successful concert tours.

As a youngster he had his first taste of entertaining aged just 12 when he appeared in Ralph Reader’s Gang Show at the Golders Green Hippodrome.

A few years later, he found his way back into showbiz when he went to a pub where the regular stand-up comedian had failed to turn up.

Egged on by friends, Jim ended up on stage telling gags – and discovered he could make an audience laugh.

Highlights of his career included five visits to the Falkland Islands, and countless shows entertaining British service personnel at hotspots all over the world.

Theatre production credits include hit West End shows Buddy and Great Balls of Fire, and major family pantomimes throughout the UK.

He also penned the adult panto Sinderella and founded the British Forces Foundation charity, as well as being chief exec of the Care After Combat charity.

Jim Davidson – Live! is at the West Cliff Theatre on Sunday at 7.30pm. Tickets are £23.50 on 01255 433344.
