TO MUSIC lovers from the 1970s Graham Fellows is probably better known as Jilted John.

Today, however, he goes by the name of John Shuttleworth and describes himself as ‘Yorkshire’s finest synthesiser player and twaddle talker’.

He’ll be making an appearance as singer, songwriter and comedian in his show, Out of Our Sheds, at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield on Tuesday, November 27.

Nominated for both Sony and Perrier awards, John Shuttleworth is Graham’s best-known comic creation and grew from his alter-ego Jilted John, who came to prominence in 1978 with a top ten single in the pop charts.

The former sweet factory security guard, who performed in Edinburgh this August, is now taking his musical comedy show around the UK.

John is a past winner of the Manchester Evening News Comedy Award and appears on Radio 4’s The Shuttleworths, television’s 500 Bus Stops and It’s Nice Up North.

Previous national tours have rejoiced in the titles One Food In The Gravy and Pillock of the Community.

Tickets for the show are £16, with concessions at £14, from the theatre box office, 01484 430528 or
