John Inman



"Tandem Song" from "John Inman - With A Bit Of Brass" . Found vinyl on the Webb Ivory label 1978. Here John Inman is accompanied by the Webb Ivory newall Band and the West Midlands Police Male Voice Choir.

"John Inman was just thirteen when he first appeared at the South Pier in Blackpool, his home town. Since then he has never looked back, with innumerable appearances on television, in cabaret and stage productions all over Britain and overseas and with starring roles in London's West End.
His West End debut came in the musical Ann Veronica at the Cambridge Theatre, followed by seventeen months at the famous Windmill Theatre after which John starred as Lord Fancourt Babberley in the production of Charley's Aunt at the Adelphi Theatre in the Strand.
However it was as Mr. Humphries in the long running BBC series Are You Being Served? that he became a household name throughout the country and world-wide. He was chosen to be the subject of This Is Your Life and was later honoured by the Variety Club of Great Britain as BBC television personality of the year. He was also voted funniest man on television by the readers of T.V. Times.
Summer seasons have also been an important element in John's varied career. His favorite show is pantomime, of which he has done over 40, and he is firmly recognised as the best dame in the business. He has appeared in six Royal Variety Performances, before most of the members of the Royal Family.
In spite of his world tours, he still returns home each christmas for his pantomime appearances. Are You Being Served? is shown on American television from coast to coast with huge success, which makes John a truly International star."

You have no idea how the re-runs of old British TV programmes keep us ex-pats from going insane.

I think that watching re-runs of "Are You Being Served" would have the opposite effect on me!
