Graham Fellows has performed as the comic character ‘John Shuttleworth’ for over 25 years on stage, TV and Radio, delighting audiences throughout the UK with his songs and quirky take on everyday life. Now Graham, minus purple leather jacket and fawn slacks (but fully clothed!) steps out from behind the keyboard to plug in his guitar and sing his own songs: revelatory, humorous and quirky still, sometimes sad. Graham will naturally talk about Shuttleworth as well as his other comic characters, plus his pivotal acting role on Coronation Street, and becoming a teenage pop star as Jilted John. Hear the tale of the night, Jazz legend, George Melly broke into Graham’s bedsit, and of the time he bought a packet of bread sauce with a famous Hollywood actor, poignantly recalled in the ballad, “Mark Rylance Was My Lodger”.
