What the papers say:
'[He] mixes the populism of Peter Kay with the camp of Larry Grayson.' Evening Standard 'This is very much Alan Carr's moment.' Heat 'joyous stuff that anyone can relate to.' Independent 'Alan Carr is the spiritual son of Frankie Howerd.' City Life 'My ballbag slipped out of my body stocking during a Bums and Tums class. I only realised when an old lady tried to poke it back in.' 'The pool was filled with so many chemicals if you did more than two lengths you changed sex.' (on school swimming lessons). ALAN CARR
Alan Carr was born in Weymouth in 1976 and grew up mainly in Northampton. He is famously the son of football manager Graham Carr. He won the BBC New Comedian of the Year in 2001 and his 2007 stand-up tour, filmed for his DVD Tooth Fairy, released at Christmas; was a nation-wide sell-out. Alan has homes in London and Manchester.
