The Return of The Big Laugh-In: Labatts Apollo, Manchester, 1991
I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue Live! New Wimbledon Theatre, London, 2020
Amazingly I have only seen Tony Hawkes live on stage twice in his long and established comedy career. In 1991, he was guesting at The Return of The Big Laugh-In showcasing the best of the current comedians where he delivered a mixture of songs and light-hearted repartee that made up a good-humoured set.
Some years later, Hawkes was a panel guest at I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue Live at the New Wimbledon Theatre, London that I saw in 2020. Hawkes was extremely good at creating very quick responses to ridiculous questions and was fearless when asked to do bizarre things like sing a famous pop song in the completely different style of another singer.
