Lowe began calling London talk radio station LBC 97.3 in 2005, as Barry from Watford. It was during Lowe’s first call that Barry’s wife Margaret (later to be played by Catherine Tate in Barry’s stage show) would be introduced. Barry became popular amongst LBC listeners, who requested that his calls be repeated on future shows.
Since 2006, Alex has also put on live performances called ‘Let’s Talk To Barry’, a 50-minute show telling about life in Watford.
In October 2008 Barry called into Harry Shearer’s Le Show radio show to discuss the American Presidential election, he was credited as ‘Barry Martin’, which Shearer later corrected to ‘Barry Saint-Martin’.
