The Tap Into Live Podcast Presents: The Carry On Girls

Friday 16 February at 7:30 pm
Join us for a celebration of the Carry On Films and the women who made them so special with comedy historians Robert Ross and Gemma Ross.

Join authors and comedy historians Gemma Ross & Robert Ross as they discuss their brilliant new book, “The Carry on Girls”.

Whether it is the seaside postcard bubbly blondes of Barbara Windsor, the hysterically historical leading ladies of Joan Sims, the coquettish authoritarians of Hattie Jacques, or the statuesque confidence of Valerie Leon, the Carry On girls are stoic, sexy and fiercely independent.

In this lavish celebration of a pioneering generation of comedy actresses who continue to radiate charm and contemporary relevance, a few home truths are revealed and some myths are debunked; but, above all, some of the best-loved icons of British entertainment are given fitting affection and respect.

GEMMA ROSS presents, writes and directs the podcast The Comedy Historian. She has also contributed to audio commentaries for British film comedy releases. ROBERT ROSS is the leading authority on the history of British comedy. His sixteen books include The Carry On Companion, and official BBC celebrations of Fawlty Towers, Last of the Summer Wine and Steptoe and Son.

This will be recorded live for the Tap into Podcast, our new podcast bringing the best of Tap Talks to a far wider audience.
