Jimmy Clitheroe

In the mid-1950s, Jimmy Clitheroe moved into radio. His first appearance was on the Home Service, in comedian Jimmy James’s show “The Mayor’s Parlour”. He soon had his own series, “Call Boy” - a Variety show.

Then came his biggest hit, “The Clitheroe Kid”. It ran for 15 years from 1957 on the Light Programme and Radio 2. It was the BBC’s longest-running situation comedy.
