Variety Shows and Summer Seasons


In the 1970s seaside holidays in the UK weren't complete without a visit to the local Summer Season show. Between 1975 and 1978 Lyn Paul appeared in the following shows:

The Frankie Howerd Show, Southsea, 1975
Starrtime '76, Bournemouth, 1976
Starrtime '77, Margate, 1977
Starrtime '78, Paignton, 1978

In 2014 Lyn returned to the variety stage, joining Olly Day in the '10th anniversary' Cromer Christmas Show. In 2016 Lyn joined an all-star cast for the Class Act 2 charity gala at the Theatre Royal, Windsor.

Starrtime '77
Winter Gardens, Margate
17th June - 17th September 1977

Having appeared in Starrtime '76 in Bournemouth, Lyn Paul signed up for a second Summer Season with Freddie Starr, this time in Margate. Stand-up comedian Mike Burton made it three in a row, having appeared with Freddie Starr in Bournemouth and in Blackpool the year before. The Pamela Devis Dancers once again provided the entertainment in between the main acts. The company was completed by singer Barry Hopkins.

The show was criticised locally for being too "blue" but Freddie Starr wasn't having any of it: "I don't break wind on stage, all I do is blow raspberries" he told the Isle of Thanet Gazette. "I have been blowing them for the past seven years."

He also defended a scene in which he turned his back to the audience as though he were about to urinate: "It's all in the mind ... All I am doing is doing up my shirt cuffs." (Isle of Thanet Gazette, Friday, 8th July 1977)

Lyn Paul also defended the show in a letter to the Daily Mirror.
