I remember hearing John Shuttleworth on the radio years and years ago and finding him very very funny. Neil posted something about him the other day, so I went and had a look at the website, where I discovered this song, which I think is rather splendid. There are lots more radio interviews and bits and bobs on the site – the couple I’ve listened to I enjoyed very much so I thought I’d pass the link on.

Ah yes, the man who inspires Andy Turner’s stage shows. I love Shuttleworth’s film It’s nIce Up North in which, to test the common theory that the further north you get the nicer people are, he travels as far north as he can get – to the Orkneys. And discovers some very nice people. Some lovely clips from from ‘It’s Nice Up North’ here.
I love that song, I quote it at least once a week! My other favourite is “Two margerines on the go, it’s a nightmare scenario”
He is a genius, I must try and get to see him next time there is a tour.
John Bennett says:
Thanks for this. I never knew before that John Shuttleworth was Jilted John in an earlier life!

Thanks for pointing that out, Dave. That has to be the most moving song about a main course since the poignant ‘On Top Of Spaghetti’:
On top of spaghetti
All covered in cheese
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed.
It rolled off the table
And onto the floor
And then my poor meatball
Rolled out of the door.
It rolled down the garden
And under a bush
And then my poor meatball
Was nothing but mush.
But many years later
There grew up a tree
All covered in meatballs
For you and for me.
It should be sung to the American song tune ‘On Top of Old Smokey’. Please use with caution, though, around small children – it is unbearably sentimental and may make them cry.
Thank you Dave. You can be held responsible for having this song in my head for most of the last couple of days. I heard it on Radio 4′s Loose Ends, and was impressed. Then I saw the video from the link on here and was impressed even more!
