Bob as Billy Goose in 1990

Bob (pictured above, with production posters from some of his shows) first appeared on stage in his school production of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' then didn't act again until he joined his local am-dram some 30-odd years later, although he was an entertainer for some years in the meantime. (He was an entertainments manager at a couple of holiday camps and he has compared many shows and pop concerts in the UK and for a short spell in Denmark). His first foray back on stage in later life was playing Billy Goose in the local pantomime of Mother Goose (pictured above).

After helping and appearing in other pantomimes, some of them with dire scripts, it got to the stage where he thought 'I could do better than this' and he set to writing his own, some of them with other writers (Stuart Ardern, Cheryl Barrett and Roger Lamb). His pantomimes have been performed all over the UK, in Ireland, Canada and Australia, and a few in other places outside the normal sphere of British Pantomime, including Morocco, Spain, and France.

As well as his scripts, Bob also writes show reviews and articles for several stage magazines, runs pantomime talks and workshops all over the country with his business and writing partner Cheryl Barrett. He also has a few pantomime props that he hires out including a pantomime horse, pantomime cow, pantomime snake, etc. These can be found via his web-page at Dublar.
Bob and Cheryl also have two books published aimed at the pantomime writer "The Pantomime Writers Book Of Gags And Routines", and "More Gags And Routines For Pantomime Writers".

Bob lives on the edge of the beautiful New Forest in Hampshire.
