A Bit of a Carry On

Darling Buds of May actor Tyler Butterworth tells the funny, moving and unashamedly nostalgic story of his much-loved parents, the nation’s first female TV impressionist Janet Brown, and the inimitable Carry On star Peter Butterworth.

From heroic wartime escapades at POW camp Stalag Luft III, to a night at Chequers with Mrs Thatcher, A Bit of a Carry On is a warm and uplifting journey from wartime to showtime, taking us deep into the golden age of British TV & film comedy – just how did a girl from Glasgow and a lad from Manchester become the first married couple to both feature as subjects on This Is Your Life? With classic film and tv clips, rare photographs and a Q&A with Tyler, A Bit of a Carry On is your chance to really get to know two of British comedy’s brightest stars, who lived to make us laugh.

“Very funny and very moving. I so enjoyed it.” Alison Steadman

“A fantastic, fascinating story. Really interesting and really enjoyable – see it!” Tessa Peake-Jones

“I was blown away. Tyler tells a great story.” Simon Williams
