The duo behind Hitchin’s successful 10-year-old club Mostly Comedy, Doggett & Ephgrave, present the second St Albans instalment at the Maltings Arts Theatre on Thursday, May 31, featuring a guest appearance from the legendary Bobby Davro, alongside Alison Thea-skot.

Davro – born Robert Christopher Nankeville – is a comedian, actor, singer and impressionist who’s been a familiar face in the UK since his major television breakthrough on the ITV variety show, Live from Her Majesty’s, in 1983.

His fame reached its peak in the mid-to-late 80s, when he appeared in his own Saturday night shows, Bobby Davro on the Box, Bobby Davro’s TV Annual and Bobby Davro’s TV Weekly, all for ITV, which made him a household name.

He then switched to the BBC in 1991 to make three more series, Public Enemy Number One, Rock with Laughter and the children’s game show Run the Risk.

In recent years, Davro has delved further into acting, playing Terry Lonsdale in ITV’s Footballers’ Wives and Vinnie Monks in BBC One’s flagship soap EastEnders.

He’s also no stranger to prime time reality TV, having appeared in Celebrity Big Brother and Come Dine with Me, and ITV’s Dancing on Ice.

Character comic Alison Thea-Skot joins Davro on the bill, fresh from her two most recent 5-star reviewed sell-out Edinburgh shows Some Like It Thea-Skot and It’s Thea-Skot in Here (So Take Off All Your Clothes), which both transferred to London’s Soho Theatre.

Alison is a critically acclaimed actress, comedian and improviser who has featured on BBC’s Culture Show and appeared in The Telegraph’s Best of the Fringe, London Is Funny’s Top 13 Edinburgh Shows to See and Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe lists.

Her radio credits include BBC Radio 4’s So On & So Forth and 4 Extra’s Newsjack and her sketches have featured on The Poke, The British Comedy Guide and Chortle online.

Ticket for Mostly Comedy at the Maltings cost £13.

Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts at 8pm.

Following the Davro show, Reginald D Hunter, Hattie Hayridge and Doggett & Ephgrave will be appearing at the Maltings Arts Theatre on Thursday, July 5.
