In 1998 our headline act Smug Roberts he released the novelty anthem “Meat Pie, Sausage Roll (Come on England, Gi’s a Goal)” as “Grandad Roberts”. Both the character and song stemming from his afternoon radio show on Key 103 and subsequent stand up comedy routine. Three years prior to that Smug was performing his first stand up gig when he was discovered by none other than Caroline Aherne (Mrs Merton Show and The Royle Family). Since then he’s gone on to star in ‘That Peter Kay Thing’ Channel 4, ‘Cold Feet’ ITV, ‘Phoenix Nights’ Channel 4, Steve Coogan’s Film ’24 Hour Party People’ and Channel 4’s Bafta award winning Buried. His confidence as a performer is legendary in the comedy world and in terms of the funnies he is on a par with his contemporaries Peter Kay and Jonny Vegas.
