Bobby with Keith Harris minus Orville!
As a composer and lyricist, Bobby has written two complete pantomime scores, one full-scale musical ("Sherwood"), a huge hit for Keith Harris and Orville, ("Orville's Song" reached No. 4 in the UK charts with 250,000 sales and was awarded a silver disc) and he has also written comedy material for Russ Abbot and Les Dennis. Bobby has also written comedy songs for 4 Poofs and A Piano, with whom he toured in the Spring of 2013.
Bobby has also appeared in 4 musicals starring as "Dr. Frank N. Furter" in "The Rocky Horror Show", "Vernon Gersch" in "They're Playing Our Song", "L.M." in "Pump Boys and Dinettes" and "Billy Flynn" in "Chicago" at top theatres around the United Kingdom.
To coincide with the release of his "Reel Music" album, Bobby played a 45-date tour with 60's singing star Gene Pitney. His sell-out show at the Arts Theatre in London's West End was followed by a critically acclaimed week in cabaret at the Cafe Royal's "Green Room", an appearance at the Royal Albert Hall in "The Stonewall Equality Show" and a national tour of "Back to Bacharach", his tribute show to the legendary Burt Bacharach, for which he also wrote the script.
Bobby was chosen as top of the bill for the "Tribute to Russ Conway" held at the St. James's Theatre. Bobby's one-man shows have been seen at the Fortune Theatre, Leicester Square Theatre, Pizza on the Park and the Pheasantry, all in London's West End. Bobby's most recent cabaret appearance was at Le Crazy Coqs in Piccadilly, where he was introduced to a whole new generation of fans and given an extended standing ovation by the sell-out crowd.
Over the years, Bobby has appeared in over 30 pantomimes. Starting in "principal boy" roles in 1973, he is now in great demand as one of the UK's top pantomime "Dames" ... a role he has played every Christmas since the year 2000.
Bobby has recently made his straight theatre debut appearing as showbiz legend Liberace in the courtroom drama "Liberace's Suit" at the Jermyn Street Theatre, London, receiving rave reviews from the national press.
This was followed by his highly acclaimed one-man show "Liberace, Live from Heaven", which played a sell-out season at the Leicester Square Theatre in London's West End, a 34-date tour of New Zealand and a 4 week run at the Edinburgh Festival.
Bobby is currently writing his autobiography entitled "Not the Boy Next Door" which, hopefully, will be published in the near future.
