The Rev Dr Clive Thomas Jackson, singer of Doctor and the Medics, combines all the elements of his career in one hilarious rollercoaster of a two man show: Stories, Songs, Myths and more, humorously delivered by the one hit wonder.

Stand-up comic, compere, actor and yes, singer! All these disciplines are brought together in a multimedia presentation of his often bizarre, certainly idiosyncratic and at times, ridiculously funny career.

The first half of the show covers his time from civil servant, spending his days sleeping at his desk due to his late night DJing, running his own club and band, through to international number 1 recording artist with 'Spirit in the Sky'.

The second half covers the most unlikely comeback of all time! From mixing cement on a building site - just 18 months after reaching number 1 - through to being a snail farmer, joiner, model maker and blacksmith. We follow the bandís resurgence from barely glowing embers at the end of the 90ís to their busiest year in 2019 for over 30 years. As the Doctor and the band entered 2020 with a new album on the way and an even busier year ahead...what could possibly go wrong?

Featuring a well-balanced mix of dialogue, music and audience interaction. The music is a smorgasbord of songs from the bands career, laced with some of their best cover versions and ending in a sing along, get up and dance finale.
