An Audience With Freddie Starr – 1996
Continuing our look at the popular Audience With format, this time we look at Freddie Starr. At the time of it’s broadcast it was the highest ever ratings for An Audience With… show and subsequently Freddie would come back for more.
Freddie Starr takes questions from a slightly nervous star studded studio audience. He walks among them seemingly throwing maggots over Faith Brown as he explains he’s taken up fishing. He enlists the help of Mr Motivator to power the studio lights from his exercise bike and exacts his revenge on a blindfolded Garry Bushnall by pretending to throw knives at him. In the show’s finale, a short compilation of musical numbers with Elvis Presley’s famous backing singers The Jordinaires, Starr shows off his vocal skills.
Original Broadcast Date: 2 March 1996
An Audience with Freddie Starr is available on DVD
