Billy Pearce’s performance in the Alhambra Theatre pantomime each year makes my festive season complete. He’s relentlessly energetic, naturally hilarious and always leaves you with that warm fuzzy feeling. His stand-up comedy is no different, all good fun and plenty of laughs.
Though describes as an ‘adult show’, I think this is only added in to dissuade people bringing young kids and expecting a panto character to burst on stage. Instead, this is Billy Pearce uncensored, ready to entertain the grown-ups.
The show is coming to St George’s Hall in Bradford on Friday 21st June, so it’s an ideal time of the year if you can’t wait the whole year round to see your favourite panto star.
Billy Pearce’s career history is particularly interesting. He’s originally from Leeds and has appeared in New Faces, five children’s Royal Variety shows and three Royal Variety Shows. He’s a stage star, too, having appeared in musicals Boogie Nights, Rocky Horror Show and Eurobeat with Mel Giedroyc. Of course, let’s not forget his incredible 20 years starring in the Alhambra Theatre pantomime (with his 21st show, Aladdin, coming up this year!)
Billy has been awarded Services to Arts and Entertainment at the Yorkshire Awards, which is an accolade previously won by the Kaiser Chiefs and Alan Ayckbourn. He’s also the recipient of a Pride of Yorkshire award.
He has also appeared in an episode of Heartbeat and the Bafta award-winning Street. A multi-talented guy indeed!
