'Hello David, this is Jimmy Tarbuck', the evergreen comedian said in his unmistakable Liverpool accent.

'Tarby', as he's known to millions of TV viewers, is performing in the county on the weekend, and still gets a 'buzz' out of performing live even though he's well into his sixth decade as an entertainer.

He said: 'The late great Ronnie Corbett told me to keep doing it as long as you still can.'

During the show he will reminisce about famous Liverpudlians including John Lennon, who was a schoolmate.

He added: 'They went away to Hamburg and they came back a different band. They were terrific. There were three songwriting geniuses in the group. George Harrison wrote 'Something' which, along with 'Yesterday', is one of their most famous tracks.

'Liverpool suddenly came alive in the late '50s and early '60s, with Bill Shankly at Liverpool football club and the Beatles emerging. My sister still lives there so I go back frequently. And Liverpool today is alive and buzzing.'

he will be appearing at the Princess Theatre, Hunstanton on Saturday, June 4 and the Gorleston Pavilion on Sunday, June 5, both at 7.30pm. Hunstanton box-office 01485 532252, Gorleston 01493 662832.
