One-man show celebrates two comedy giants

Jeffrey Holland (Hi-de-Hi, You Rang M’Lord) returns to Lighthouse Poole on Saturday November 26 in And This Is My Friend Mr Laurel, his sell-out one-man show about friendship, memories and a couple of remarkable lives.
Set in the bedroom of a sick Oliver Hardy, the show takes place during Stan Laurel’s visit to the dying man. Reflecting on their success as the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy, this is a funny and touching look at one of the great cinematic partnerships.

Jeffrey Holland has become a well-known face in some of the UK’s most iconic television shows including Dixon of Dock Green, Are You Being Served, Crossroads, Dad’s Army and It Ain’t Half Hot Mum.
His breakthrough role was as Spike Dixon, the camp comic at the Maplin’s Holiday Camp in Hi-de-Hi!, in which he appeared with Paul Shane and Su Pollard. He was also a regular performer in Russ Abbot’s Madhouse before going on to appear again with Paul Shane and Su Pollard in You Rang, M’Lord? and Oh, Doctor Beeching! – two hugely popular sitcoms also penned by David Croft and Jimmy Perry, the writers of Hi-de-Hi!
