Comedy legend Barry Cryer will be joined on stage by the former ‘Fabulous Poodle’ Ronnie Golden for a new show entitled Going Gaga.

With a combined age of 142, the pair will deliver a mixed show of comedy and song. There will be plenty of Barry’s notorious jokes and stories as well as some wicked wit and skilful strumming from Ronnie.

Without a “safety net or Zimmer frame in sight,” the pair will deal with some of the burning issues of the day such as mobile phone frustrations, Stannah Stairlifts and... John Prescott.

Barry Cryer started out in stand-up at London’s Windmill Theatre during the 1950s alongside such fresh-faced hopefuls as Danny La Rue, Ronnie Corbett and Bruce Forsyth.

He then went on to write for Morecambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, Kenny Everett and Bob Hope.

Under his real name Tony De Meur, Ronnie Golden was lead singer/guitarist and songwriter for the band Fabulous Poodles, who outsold both The Clash and The Jam in the UK in the late ‘70s. The show will take place today at The Core at Corby Cube. Call 01536 470470 or visit www.thecorecorby.com for more information.

Tickets cost £17.50 or £15.50 for concessions. The show will start at 7.30pm.
