Synopsis:
Featuring a regular cast that includes Jimmy Jewel, David Schofield, Sharon Duce, Jean Boht, Pamela Stephenson and Lynda Bellingham, 'Funny Man' charts the mixed fortunes of an extended family of music-hall entertainers in search of their big break and was based on the experience of Jewel's father's company of players in the 1920's and 1930's. The late 1920's is not the best time to be in the business of traditional variety entertainment, as audiences flock to the new cinemas opening in every town.
But it is amid these inauspicious circumstances that the Gibsons comedian Alec and his children Davey, Teddy and Kath, and an assortment of charismatic performers - make the move south from their native North East to try to break onto the London circuit. Encountering family tragedy, indifferent audiences and a constant shortage of funds, it's just as well that Alec Gibson is a tireless perfectionist, and a man who rarely accepts defeat...
