MANIC comedian Freddie Starr is coming to the Regent soon … so expect the unexpected.

Famous, or should that be infamous, for such headlines as Freddie Starr Ate My Hamster, Freddie's career has spanned four decades with his outrageous antics.

His stage characters are just as outrageous as the headlines he has fuelled over the years with a wellie-wearing Adolph Hitler being one of the most famous.

It promises to be a night of great humour from someone who has a child's imagination with a grown-up's wicked sense of fun.

Born in the harsh world of working class Liverpool in the 1940s Freddie spent much of his youth mixing with gangsters.

He has been described as the bad boy of British comedy and in the 1990s some critics thought he had gone just a little too far with his popular television show An Audience With Freddie Starr.

As a child he was unable to speak and then later in life he became addicted to Valium. It is a life of extreme highs and lows which is echoed throughout his comedy.

He became known first as a rock and roll singer in the 1960s with the band The Midnighters and soon he was a household name and even played in front of Royalty.

Freddie will be at the Regent on May 24 so be warned, leave your sensitivities at the door and your ability to be offended well and truly locked up.

But if you fancy a night of adult humour with more than a little slapstick thrown in then contact the Regent box office on 01473 433100.
