This is a very entertaining and vibrant show, as Nicholas Parsons takes his audience on a humorous and nostalgic journey through the memorabilia of his long and eventful life, seeing the funny side of every situation as he highlights with superb and often hilarious observation those events that have shaped his career. His early struggles to enter the difficult and unpredictable world of show business and to achieve something in that amazing and challenging world. Also the stories of how he survived in the demanding and heady world of entertainment and achieved the position he now commands.
As a mimic and impressionist he not only recalls the incidents and events, he recreates them with vivid and amusing impersonations of the personalities involved. His comic timing and accurate observation creates a cast of characters that make this an unusual evening of comedy which has the audience entertained and laughing throughout, whether the programme runs the normal two hours or is abbreviated to one hour.
