Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Cornish Comedian Jethro Exclusive Interview….
Jethro is one of the most successful touring comedians and his DVD’s sell gangbusters every Christmas!
Belfield went backstage during his tour in Mansfield to talk to the notoriously private man about his life, loves and career.
Rowe made his TV debut on the Westward Television programme ‘Treasure Hunt’ playing a pirate co-host.
In addition to his appearances on stage and video, Jethro has made a record nine appearances on TV shows hosted by Des O’Connor. His first appearance was on the Des O’Connor Tonight show in 1990, followed by a return for the Christmas Eve show later that year – the first time a comedian had been invited back during one series.
He also appeared five times on Jim Davidson’s Generation Game show, twice giving a demonstration of how to make a Cornish pasty. Jethro was also involved in one of the show’s longest sequences of out-takes, removed due to his and Davidson’s uncontrolled fits of laughter but later shown separately; it involved the story of Hans Brinker, “the boy who put his finger in the dike”, with a pun on dyke. Davidson has said that he regards Jethro as his favourite storyteller, one of his great stories being Train don’t stop Camborne Wednesdays.
He has hosted two shows of his own, The Jethro Junction, on HTV and in December 2001 appeared in front of Queen Elizabeth II for the Royal Variety Show.
Recorded by Alex Belfield for the BBC and Celebrity Radio 2009.
