(If you manage to get tickets for one of his famous live events then the following advice is offered: Unbutton your cardigans before it starts! It will be a rib-cracking night out with the Bradshaws, almost held together by Buzz Hawkins, singer/songwriter, story-teller, all-round funnyman, and of course award-winning writer, producer and voices of the wickedly funny radio favourites the Bradshaws)

This unique and healthy experience (laughter is good for you!) with Buzz Hawkins could cause face-ache, wheezing, loss of breath, loss of dentures, sore ribs and temporary incontinence due to the unavoidable amount of laughing you have to do. Beware and be ready for a night out you'll never forget.

Having written radio comedy for twenty-odd years, Hawkins' material is wide and seemingly endless. Some would believe though (understandably perhaps) that it's all nostalgia based. and therefore not for younger audiences. Wrong! Yes, nostalgia with The Bradshaws and seeing life through their eyes, but right on the button with clever comedy songs such as Eee Well Y'ave To Laugh Ant Yer? (all one word, by the way), Father Fanakerpan's Secret, Country Billy Gerkin and The Pickle Stabbers, Raji Sing Song, Poor Old Norman, Tongue Twisting (beware! this one!), and the exquisite Sadie.
And when Hawkins asks "It's catchy intit?" you'd be lying if you said no.

His observation is on par with Billy Connolly, Frank Skinner, Clive James, Arthur Smith, Victoria Wood and Peter Kay (Peter's mam has all the tapes) and yet his take on it is totally unique.

We defy you to put Hawkins in a bag! (please?!)

Interesting fact: If you go to the Wikipedia website and search The Bradshaws you'll find that the Bradshaws have a section dedicated to them - but Buzz Hawkins doesn't!

Are they a figment of his imagination or is he a figment of theirs?!
