Cannon And Ball At Christmas

Cannon And Ball At Christmas

Cannon and Ball first appeared on our TV screens with their own show in 1979.

The show ran for nine years, during those nine years the duo produced four Christmas Specials.  Today we want to look back 43 years and the duo’s very first festive offering.

By now the duo then just 40 (Tommy) and 35 (Bobby) had two successful TV series behind them.  Promoting the Festive Special The Sun newspaper called 1980 their most successful year in showbusiness (at that time).


Tommy Cannon and the much missed Bobby Ball perform comedy routines and sketches with special guests.
