About

Comedy legends Jasper Carrott and Alistair McGowan are joining forces to split the bill and your sides with a night of comedy stand up and impressions. Drawing on their wealth of experience the two masters of comedy present a show of pure laughter and entertainment that is not to be missed.

When the pair first teamed up for a one off festival appearance it proved a match made in comedy heaven and the chance to work together again was simply too good to miss. Splitting the evening between them, the mix of Jasper’s inimitable stand up and Alistair’s peerless impressions is a terrific experience for the audience and the artists alike.

Jasper took a break from live performance after a 40 year career that has taken him around the globe and seen him showered with awards including the prestigious BBC TV Personality of the Year and the British Comedy Awards Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2003 Jasper was awarded an OBE in Her Majesty’s New Year’s Honours List, in recognition of his outstanding work for charity.

He’s back now for what may be his final live shows, and thrilled to be working with Alistair. “After last year we both wanted to do more together. For me the chance to work with such an accomplished performer as Alistair is a dream come true. Just past my 70th year, this might be my last series of shows. It means I can go out on a high in the best comedy company.”

Don’t miss this chance to see the godfather of British comedy Jasper Carrott and Britain’s leading comedy impressionist at the top of their game, having a blast and delighting audiences in their unique ways.

Venue Info

Phoenix Concert Hall

Designed as a scaled down version of the Royal Festival Hall, (both venues shared the same acoustic consultant, Hope Bagenal), our Concert Hall is recognised internationally for its fantastic and bright acoustics and has “…some of the finest acoustics in Europe” as stated by renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski.

The Phoenix Concert Hall will once again play host to the London Mozart players as resident Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra.

 

 


Phoenix Pianos

Phoenix Pianos - Fairfield Halls

Phoenix Pianos are a British company that pride themselves on leading the piano manufacture industry with new, high-end piano technologies.

Founder and Chairman, Richard Dain, is a man of impressive engineering pedigree and tireless vision, who in the early 2000s began to combine his passion for pianos and music with his wide-ranging engineering skills.

A series of ground-breaking innovations have led to the most technologically advanced pianos in the world.

The Phoenix mission is twofold:

  1. To once again offer inspiration to artists in new levels of acoustic performance, after a century of near complete stagnation within the piano industry.
  2. To make highly practical improvements to piano design, such as climate resistance, longevity of parts, reliability of performance, and touch response.

Phoenix instruments benefit from:

  • Carbon fibre and Kevlar soundboard designs
  • A new highly responsive action comprising 3D printed and carbon fibre parts
  • Patented bridge technology to improve the power and efficiency of acoustic transfer, giving artists access to a wider dynamic range

The installation of a fleet of Phoenix instruments in the Fairfield Halls, and their sponsoring of the Phoenix Academy, represent a very special moment for both piano design and manufacture, and for this premier venue.
