Very few comedians could turn the worst year of their life into a triumph, but fresh from winning the most successful series of Big Brother ever by a landslide, Jim Davidson has done exactly that.

His new show comes to The Capitol, Horsham, on Monday and Tuesday, November 24 and 25, at 7.30pm.

‘No Further Action’ will see Jim tell the story of his arrest and the nightmare 12 months that followed, the clearing of his name and winning the heart of the nation all over again as a Big Brother champion.

Jim will be doing all this in the only way he knows how, by entertaining people, something he’s been doing to great acclaim for nearly 40 years.

The evening promises to be the most outrageous, hilarious and insightful show Jim has ever performed.

On announcing the new show, Jim said: “It was an interesting time. I had a rough ride for a while, but it’s great to be back on stage doing what I love and the best way of dealing with a nightmare is to talk about it.

“I always seem to find the funny side of things...even this.

“And then, for a finale, along came Big Brother. Wait until you hear the inside stories on that!”

No stranger to the limelight, having dominated prime time TV comedy for over a decade, Jim is not only one of the country’s best established comics, but one of the most popular stand-up comedians of all time. Alongside hosting popular TV shows, such as Big Break and The Generation Game, Jim’s sell-out theatre tours and pantomimes have broken box office records and received critical acclaim.

During the ’80s Jim travelled the world performing for the troops, taking his top quality entertainment to some of the most inhospitable places imaginable. For this he was made an OBE.

Now his time in Big Brother has come to an end, Jim is back where he belongs – on stage, entertaining audiences around the country.

Tickets for the show cost £23.50 (concessions £20, buy 10 get one free).
