A PHILAMORNIC PREVIEW

(FROM LIVERPOOL ECHO)

HULL-BORN entertainer Joe Longthorne began performing in talent shows at the age of four – and, by his early teens, was making a name for himself on TV programmes such as television's Junior Showtime.

His range of vocal impersonations, as well as his own distinctive voice, have earned him awards ever since.

And if anyone deserves the title Mr Nice Guy, it’s Joe.

In 1981, the affable star appeared in Search For A Star and this led to national recognition.

His own TV series was soon to follow and he became an international name, due to the sheer diversity of his stage content. It was variety with a capital V.

Joe has also impressed the showbiz greats and shared the same stage with many of the world's most famous artists, appearing in Royal Variety Performances and with his hero Bob Hope at the London Palladium.

On stage, as on record and DVD, Joe's repertoire of voices contains a vast selection of the world's finest singers.

Shirley Bassey, one of the subjects he is most famous for impersonating, says of him: "Joe can do me better than I can do myself."

A real compliment from the heart.

Joe has an incredible army of dedicated fans and he is on first-name terms with many of them.

It’s his bloke-next-door appeal that has endeared him to an audience of all ages.

But this likeable star has had his fair share of ups and downs.

In 1989 he was diagnosed as having lymphoma and began a course of treatment at the Brotherton ward of Leeds General Infirmary.

Subsequent to his treatment there, Joe helped the hospital to raise funds for them through his involvement.

He will never forget his roots or the help and support of family and fans.

“I love the people of Liverpool; they have always been there for me as I am for them,” he says.

In 2007 he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Variety Club and anyone seeing him on stage will know why.

Pauline Daniels, Stevie Riks, Tony Barton and guest compère Ricky Tomlinson join him at the Phil for a night to remember.

Joe Longthorne Spectacular Show: Tuesday October 9, 7.30pm.
