Joe Longthorne is a talented artist that began his career over four decades ago.
His big break came in 1981 when he was a finalist on London Weekend TV’s Search for a Star, this then led to appearences with Bob Hope. Joe’s repertoire of voices is endless and includes hundreds of the world’s top singers, however he is perhaps best known for his Shirley Bassey impersonation. She herself commented: “Joe can do me better than I do myself”. This really is a show not to be missed as Joe shares humour, life experiences, stories, views and observations, mixed with impressions by the hundred!
