Bobby Davro is one of the UK's funniest and best-known celebrity comedians. Davro made an early impression at school - he was caught mimicking his headmaster, a Harold Wilson sound-a-like, and was given six of the best! After leaving school, Bobby started to work as a trainee manager in a large department store where he was soon trying out more impressions as John Inman and Mrs. Slocombe. His next job was in his Father's retail store - named Davro after sons David and Robert (Bobby) which he left after deciding to try a showbiz career full-time. Bobby made his TV debut in 1981, but his major break through came with an appearance in Live at Her Majesty's in 1983.
This led to his own Saturday night series 'Bobby Davro on The Box', 'Bobby's Sketch Pad' and 'TV Weekly', which immediately topped the ratings for six consecutive years and made Bobby Davro a household name throughout the country.In 1991 Bobby moved to the BBC and made three series, 'Public Enemy Number One', 'Rock with Laughter' and 'Run the Risk'. He returned to our screens in May 1997 as host of 'Yorkshire Television's Winner Takes All' for 65 programmes. Bobby can be seen regularly presenting outside broadcasts from GMTV. Versatility is the key to Bobby's longevity as a high profile personality. Be it in Television, Pantomime, Corporate Events and Awards Presentations.
Bobby has recently completed touring his Swing In The Park big band show, a tribute to the swing era and featuring his own 12-piece orchestra and special guests. His latest venture is another brand new show entitled Not In front Of The Children in which Bobby considers himself to be at his most outrageous and best enabling him to combine all his superb array of talents. In rare moments away from the limelight, Bobby lists playing golf, snooker, fishing or simply relaxing in front of the television amongst his hobbies.Book now
