A stream of unconsciousness and sit-down comedy will be on offer at Buxton Opera House from the legendary Barry Cryer in his show Twitter Titters on Tuesday, March 25 at 7.30pm.

Barry Cryer, pictured, started his career as a bottom billing act at The Windmill Theatre, London whilst writing in his spare time.

Soon he was selling material to a host of names such as Danny La Rue, Frankie Howerd, Ronnie Barker, Tommy Cooper and Les Dawson.

Barry's performing career took off too, with a host of TV and theatre jobs including performing in the BBC series Hello Cheeky with Buxton's Tim Brooke-Taylor. Barry has also been a regular panellist in Sorry I haven't a Clue since its inception in 1972.

In yet another farewell tour, the writer and comedy genius will appear with pianist Colin Sell (who has appeared as a panellist in Sorry I haven't a Clue). Having been charged with persistent joking, Baz asks that 20 other shows be taken into consideration.

You are the Judge and Jury; be merciful to the aged accused – he merely seeks to bring a ray of sunshine amid the dark clouds of life.

Awarded the OBE in 2001 for services to comedy drama, Barry is still doing his thing – performing in theatre and night clubs, radio and television and as an after-dinner speaker.

Tickets for Barry Cryer are priced at £14 and £16 and discounts are available. For more information or to buy tickets call the Box Office on 0845 127 2190 or buy online at www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.
