Joe is coming to Devon

Have just managed to book some seats for Joe Longthornes show when he comes to north devon next april. My wife and myself have been fans of his for many years and travelled to blackpool to see him last year. A wonderful entertainer and fantastic guy, even when he was receiving treatment for his illness he still performed so as not to dissapoint his fans.

I have never heard of him.

Is he still on the go?

When he did his Shirley Bassey impression he sounded more like Shirley Bassey then Shirley Bassey herself, he even had her mannerisms off to a tee!

A lot of people have not heard of Joe, but he is truly one of the best, I would rank him at least the equal of Frank Sinatra. As his website say's his illness kept him from the fame he so richley deserved, not only has he a wonderful voice but his impersonations are wonderfully entertaining. It is very rare for him to come to this part of the country, so it is very exciting for us to be able to go to see him, but every year his shows in blackpool are sellouts.

"I would rank him at least the equal of Frank Sinatra"

Frank Sinatra???

A man who seemed to have a large fan base but, in truth, couldn't sing but was very good at TALKING along to music.

Things must be really bloody desperate on the entertainment front in Devon if you have to use Sinatra as a comparison.

Are you also a fan of that other 'entertainer' who was popular in Blackpool - George Formby?

we know that he's better than Sydney Devine!

Is this the pub or the entertainer? He doesn't seem to come south, where in N. Devon?

Joe Longthorne is still alive!
