RBM comedy is proud to announce that versatile singer/organist John Shuttleworth - “The Godfather of character comedy” (Evening Standard) - will be taking to the stage once again in 2020 for a fifty plus date UK tour - his first in three years!

Hence the title - ‘John Shuttleworth's Back’. But guess what? The show is also about… his back! It's been giving him trouble, you see. Years of strenuous DIY, not to mention playing his organ whilst perched upon a multi pack of Diet Sprite with no lumbar support, has taken a heavy toll on the former Comet employee and security guard at a Rotherham sweet factory.

But - ever the trouper - John will brave the stage to regale audiences with an evening of his classic compositions (plus brand new songs and hilarious 'back' stories), pausing no doubt only to reapply his deep heat rub!

Later this year sees a welcome return of the much loved 'fly on the wall' sitcom, 'The Shuttleworths', voted “the 26th Best Radio show ever" in a recent Radio Times poll. A half hour Christmas special will be broadcast in late December, and this will be followed by a brand new book by “Sheffield’s Funniest Man” (The Independent) - 'TWO MARGARINES and other Domestic Dilemmas'. This is to be released in April 2020 by renowned music publisher Omnibus - the first John Shuttleworth book in over 20 years will be available for fans to buy exclusively at shows during the tour from January onwards.

Actor/musician Graham Fellows has a long history of creating lovable characters and his first - Jilted John - reached number 4 in the UK charts in 1978 selling half a million copies. Graham was also behind “The Forest Gump of Rock” Brian Appleton who appeared in a variety of stage and TV shows and enjoyed two series on BBC Radio 4, plus Goole based concreter Dave Tordoff who delighted audiences with his very special brand of humour.

Graham recently appeared as himself on BBC TV's 'Celebrity Mastermind', toured the UK in his stage show 'Completely Out Of Character' whilst releasing a critically acclaimed album of heartfelt indie folk songs - 'Weird Town'.

John Shuttleworth meanwhile, guest starred in an episode of BBC TV's 'Count Arthur Strong', and motored around Britain with Wayne Hemingway in 'Celebrity Antiques Roadshow', as well as winning 'Pointless Celebrities' and the coveted Pointless Trophy.
