BARRY CRYER: A Tribute With a Little Help from His Friends

27th March 2022

Price: £18.00

Concession: £16.00

The national outpouring of sorrow and tributes at the passing of our friend Barry Cryer proved that he was the supreme British mirth-maker, a unique giant in the history of British comedy, to rank with mythical titans like Grimaldi, Dan Leno and George Robey.  Yet even they each created only one character:  Barry’s comedic  invention did much to recognise the genius and shape the skills and style of several generations of star comedians.

The originally planned programme of Slapstick 2022 included a live show celebrating Barry in person.  This show and celebration will now go on, hosted by his friend and long-time comic collaborator Les Dennis, with Barry’s Son Bob Cryer along and his regular collaborators on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, Graeme Garden and Colin Sell. 

The evening is an opportunity to celebrate Barry’s memory and genius, presented by those who knew him best

Please join us in this celebration of Baz’s finest moments and memories - and a generous dose of parrot jokes.

All profits from the event will go to Barry’s favourite cause:  The Royal Variety Charity

Show at 3:30pm
