COMEDIAN and television personality Jim Davidson had the audience begging for more – literally.
The Regent Theatre was packed out and people clapped, cheered and laughed until their sides hurt. I still couldn't stop smiling long after I had returned home.
The controversial comedian treated his audience to some of the bluest, outrageous, but hilarious adult comedy. Celebrating 25 years in show business this was Jim Davidson at his best.
Jim, one of the UK's favourite funnymen, started his show with dramatic lighting before he launched into song and his adult comedy routine had the audience hanging on every word.
Nothing was sacred as the former host of the Generation Game ripped into Scotsmen, Irishmen, the Welsh, women, old, young, Suffolk, Norfolk, Ipswich Town, Tony Blair…and reporters.

"You could tell he was called Macdonald, because if you lifted up his skirt you could see two half-pounders…and some cheese" was one of the few printable jokes.
He had the audience singing along – surprisingly tunefully. He also picked on one unfortunate girl from the audience and rooted through her handbag before phoning her boyfriend live on stage.
"Of course women live longer. They don't do anything," he said earlier. This was no place for political correctness. But in this show, pretty much everyone was a target.
Jim recently received three show business personality of the year awards from Variety Club of Great Britain, the Grand Order of Water Rats and Comic Heritage.
Last year he received an OBE for his services to charity. His TV shows include BBC series Big Break and The Generation Game.
First up before Jim's act was Roger Kitter, actor and comic with 33 years in show business.
Roger, who was in Bird of a Feather and Goodnight Sweetheart, was a huge hit with the audience. It was a fabulous build up to what turned out to be a hilarious and memorable evening of entertainment.
