Cult stand-up to light up Kettering theatre


One of the most well-known stands up to grace the stage is to perform at The Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering.

Jethro will perform at the venue on Wednesday May 27 starting at 7.30pm.

Although rarely seen on TV, he sells more than 250,000 theatre seats a year and does a roaring trade on video.

His few small-screen outings include The Des O’Connor Show, where he appeared a record nine times, and five appearances on Jim Davidson’s Generation Game, twice to make a Cornish pasty.

In 1993 Jethro released his first video A Portion of Jethro, which sold nearly 150,000 copies, a success which he has followed up with another nine titles.

Armed with nothing more than a microphone and delivered to you in a warm Cornish accent, Jethro has the rare ability to paint hilarious pictures in the mind of his audience. He has more than 4 million DVD sales, testimony to the size and dedication of his army of followers.

Tickets for the show cost £20 and can be booked by calling 01536 414141 or visit
