An Evening With … Bobby Ball
There are many ways of describing Bobby Ball. Rough, tough, lovable and very funny – he is, of course, half of the enormously successful comedy duo Cannon and Ball, who for many years at the top of their profession, packing in audiences for their stage performances and always riding high in the ratings for their TV shows.
The world of show business, the press and the general public found it difficult to believe this hard little comic, with such a wild reputation, had fairly recently become a Christian. But it is true. Jesus has turned Bobby Ball’s life upside-down, and with typical enthusiasm his desire is to share his faith with people who woudn’t normally hear about it – those in the theatre, the studio, those on the street…and in the pub!
This video is an edited recording of Bobby’s visit to Rosie’s public house in Edmonton, North London. He is joined by a number of friends – some of who share his faith, and some who don’t – and you can enjoy a mixture of comedy, music and Christian testimony from this man who, after years of searching for peace and purpose to life has found it in Jesus Christ.
Bobby is married to Yvonne – who has also become a committed Christian and has three children. He has also recently published a series of books for children based on characters from ‘Juniper Jungle’.
