Biography

Jasper Carrott OBE (born Robert Davis, March 14, 1945) is an English comedian (declaring himself “world famous in Birmingham”)

Born in Acocks Green, Birmingham, he was educated at Moseley School. He started his own folk club at 16 called “The Boggery” in Solihull, where he would perform folk songs as well as MC. Before long, his banter with the audience overtook the actual songs and he became known more as a comedian than a singer. He also worked as a musical agent (in partnership with Harvey Andrews), as Finger-Me-Gig, managing (among other bands) Decameron.

He had a surprise UK top 5 chart hit in 1975 with a novelty record called “Funky Moped” written by Chris Rohmann. The B-Side to this single was a risqué monologue parodying the animated children’s TV series The Magic Roundabout. The latter was banned by the BBC, an action which is widely believed to have contributed to its commercial success.
