John’s bad back is much better now, thank you, so he can safely punch the air once more as he performs all the faves from his pre-lockdown tour including classics like ‘Y Reg’, ‘I Can’t Go Back To Savoury’ and ‘Pigeons in Flight’. Expect too fantastic new ditties written during lockdown, including ‘Stay at Home and Protect the VHS’. The songs will be interrupted by hilarious phone calls from Ken, Mary and Joan Chitty, plus John’s tips on how to cope with modern home life, as described in his stylish new(ish) book ‘Two Margarines and other Domestic Dilemmas’!
