DICK WHIT­TING­TON

It’s safe to call Devon-born co­me­dian Andy Ford a panto vet­eran af­ter clock­ing up one ev­ery year for the past 26 years. In last year’s pan­tomime Peter Pan at the The­atre Royal Ply­mouth, I think he stole the show as Smee – whip­ping au­di­ences up into a state of near frenzy with his greet­ing “al­reet my luvver” in the ac­cent of a Ply­mouthian, af­fec­tion­ately re­ferred to as a “Jan­ner”.

It’s great that he went down so well that this sea­son he re­turns to Ply­mouth as Idle Jack in Dick Whit­ting­ton along­side John Par­tridge and Sa­man­tha Womack from Easten­ders. He must en­joy panto, I sug­gest.
