Tony Hawks is a TV and radio comedian and bestselling author. He is a regular guest on radio programmes including The News Quiz, Would I Lie to You, Just a Minute, and I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, and recently has presented his own series on Radio 4, Tony Hawks’ Lost Weekends. He has also appeared on screen on Have I Got News For You, They Think It’s All Over, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, and in various episodes of Red Dwarf.
But now the time has come for his greatest gamble yet – turning his back on comfortable city life to move to the wilds of the West Country.
Once Upon a Time in the West Country has the title of a fairytale and a story therein with a fair smattering of magic. It tells the story of a man who went west, leaving behind his life as a born and bred townie to embrace the life of rural Devon.
Tony has embraced the rituals of village life with absurd and hilarious consequences. He also found the time for one last solo adventure before fatherhood arrived – perennially unable to resist a bet, he rose to the challenge set by a South Devon heckler at one of his shows and ended up cycling with a micro pig named Titch coast to coast in appalling weather. Find out why when you come to see him!
