DVD produced in 2005 at the time of the Funny Guys stage show. Features Cannon and Ball along with Harper, Barricade and Little Albert in a variety of sketches.
Three double acts and a vertically challenged man named Little Albert decided they wanted to work together and that is how Funny Guys began. From very humble beginnings Funny Guys have gone on to a very successful live tour and a DVD.
The performers in Funny Guys are Rob Harper and Darren Harper who together are a double act that is gaining a strong reputation and have fans all over the U.K.. They have worked with Joe Longthorne, Peter Kay and countless other stars.
There is Craig Cousar and Jonathan Richards who together are Barricade. They have performed all over the world including the famous Las Vegas.
There is Tommy Cannon and Bobby Ball who together make Cannon and Ball. They have been major stars for a quarter of a century. They have broken box office records at every major theatre in the country as well as starring in their own television series lasting over twelve years.
Last, but by no means least is Little Albert who has appeared in many major movies including Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. He has worked with all major stars and he says “being in Funny Guys is the best thing I’ve ever done.”
So from all the Funny Guys we would like to say “put the kettle on, get a cup of tea, put your feet up and have a laugh with us.”
