Showtime again for the man of many voices
THE talented Joe Longthorn began his career more than three decades ago with appearances on Junior Showtime, followed by a grounding on the tough northern club circuit.
His big break came in 1981 when he was a finalist on London Weekend Television’s Search for a Star, which led to appearances at the London Palladium with Bob Hope and The Talk of the Town.
Joe’s repertoire of voices is endless and includes hundreds of the world’s top singers, but he is perhaps best known for his impersonation of Shirley Bassey.
During his career, Joe has received gold and platinum discs for his albums, enjoyed sell-out concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as touring Australia several times.
