THE star of television’s Catchphrase and more recently Radio One’s Carpark Catchphrase is set for Armagh next month in what is sure to be a night loaded with laughter.
Roy Walker is already well known to TV viewers through top ITV game show, “Catchphrase”, and has won a whole new fan base through his regular ‘Carpark Catchphrase’ feature on Chris Moyles’ BBC Radio 1 breakfast show.
He takes to the stage at the Marketplace Theatre on Saturday September 1, followed by dates in Newtownabbey, Enniskillen and Coleraine.
He has become a huge cult hit and is regularly booked for universities around the country where he plays to sell-out audiences – often to two thousand screaming students at a time!
His debut at the Edinburgh Festival where he appeared for the entire season was a huge success and met with great critical acclaim.
He also appeared at the Udderbelly Festival on the Southbank, London SE1 where he received a standing ovation from the audience.
He made his movie debut as ‘The Monsignor’ in the film The Jealous God, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by John Braine. The Jealous God, starring Jason Merrells (Cutting It, Clocking Off) and Denise Welch (Coronation Street, Soldier, Soldier, Down to Earth) was released by North Country Pictures.
