Cannon and Ball

Tommy Cannon and Bobby Ball are one of Britain’s funniest and most successful double acts. In a career spanning over 30 years they have achieved a string of honours that includes them among the all-time greats of showbusiness.

On television they have starred in their own series practically every year since 1979. They have ‘guested’ on all the major shows including Wogan, Parkinson, The Des O’Connor Show, Sunday Night at the Palladium and several Royal Variety Shows. They featured in a BBC documentary Funny Business based on double acts, which also included footage of comedy legends Martin and Lewis, Laurel and Hardy, and Morecambe and Wise.

To add to their pedigree, they remain the only act to have won three separate National Club Awards and be names as the Variety Club ‘Personalities of the Year’. Their feature film The Boys in Blue in addition to its cinema success, has gone on to become a video best seller. The boys have also been the subject of This is Your Life!

During the 1970s they built a strong reputation around the UK cabaret club circuit for being a great live act. They also toured extensively in the hotel circuits of Australia and South Africa.

Tom and Bob have broken records in theatres all over the UK, including London. In 1981 they played a six-week season at the Dominion Theatre. Every seat was sold before the show opened, and in 1988 their pantomime Babes in the Wood broke all previous pantomime records at the world famous London Palladium, where Cannon and Ball created the record for the largest box office amount taken in one week in British theatre history.

Rock with Laughter 96 fulfilled Tommy and Bobby’s ambition to star in their own Rock ‘n’ Roll spectacular, their first summer season for producers QDOS.

After an extensive Autumn tour and a trip to Israel, the boys played the Chinese Policemen in Aladdin in the Theatre Royal, Newcastle, and again at the Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton.

They have appeared on many major TV shows including The Des O’Connor Show, Noel Edmond’s House Party, Talking Telephone Numbers and The Generation Game.

In the spring of 1999 the boys appeared at various theatres across the country starring in A Night at the Music Hall whilst continuing their tour of An Audience With…

The boys played full houses at their Summer Season in 1999 at the Blackpool Grand Theatre, the season was one of the most successful summers Blackpool has ever had!


The 1999/2000 pantomime season saw the boys play the Regent Theatre, Stoke on Trent, for the production Cinderella, co-starring Melinda Messenger and Britt Ekland.

The early part of 2000 saw the boys starring and touring in various shows throughout the UK’s theatres. Summer Season 2000 featured the successful Comedy Bonanza Show (which broke box office records) at the Blackpool Grand Theatre and the Princess Theatre, Torquay, for 10 weeks and later included Sundays at the Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth. Pantomime 2000/2001 saw the boys star at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford.

2001/2002 pantomime saw them starring in Aladdin with Tricia Penrose at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham.

Tommy and Bobby appeared at the Comedy Bonanza, Blackpool Grand Theatre throughout the summer of 2002 and went on to star in Dick Whittington as Captain and Captain’s Mate at the New Theatre, Cardiff. The following year they starred in Summer Season at the Britannia Pier, Great Yarmouth, and Weymouth Pavilion Theatre.

They hit a new record-breaking high in 2003/2004 at the Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton, with Peter Pan for one of the longest running seasons in the UK. The boys played Yoo and Smee, two bumbling pirates, much to the annoyance of the evil Captain Hook.

Tommy and Bobby returned to our television screens early in 2004 with the BBC1 series Revolver, a comedy sketch show that brought together a whole host of talent that we all know and love, such as John Inman, Leslie Phillips and Honor Blackman.

This summer the boys teamed up with The Grumbleweeds as they performed at the Blackpool Grand Theatre with the hugely popular Comedy Bonanza, they also appeared at the Britannia Pier, Great Yarmouth, the Futurist Theatre, Scarborough, and the Embassy Theatre, Skegness.

Even after 40 years of making people laugh, Tommy and Bobby are still enjoying every minute and are looking forward to entertaining for many years to come.
