Although Alfie the Labrador features in a starring role in this show, his performance capability is somewhat limited by his inability to communicate except through wagging his tail, cheesy grins, and happy panting sounds. His on-stage partner, Charles Garland, adds some additional fun material.
During a frenetic career as director and producer at the BBC, Charles worked on Royal Variety Performances, The Paul Daniels Magic Show, French and Saunders, Every Second Counts, Big Break and Top Of The Pops, but is best known as assistant to David Croft OBE, co-creator and legendary producer of Dad’s Army, Hi-De Hi!, ‘Allo! ‘Allo!, You Rang M’Lord?, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, and Oh, Doctor Beeching!
This show is full of laughs, hitherto untold stories from behind the scenes, and a few verses concerning the awesome Labrador Alfie.
